Chelsea manager Maurizio has kept the door open for former Blues captain John Terry to return to the Stamford Bridge, according to report in Sky Sports.
Terry turned down a move to join Spartak Moscow after he left Aston Villa at the end of last season.
Sarri was of the view that "The last time I spoke with him he told me he wants to play for another season," said Sarri.
"I don't know the situation now. I'm talking about one week ago. Chelsea is his home of course."

Asked if he would be open to Terry's return, Sarri said: "Of course."
When asked about Terry joining the coaching staff he said: "In the coaching staff, I think. As I said before I want to give space to the younger players. Fortunately, we have very strong young players.
"Terry would be a point of reference for me, for everybody here I think.
"Here is his home. So he will be very important for everyone here. His presence."
Sarri said Terry's possible return to Chelsea is "up to him".
"If he wants to play for another season I think it's right he tries to play," said Sarri. "But if he wants to help us I'm very, very happy.
"I'm very open with him because he's the history of the club."
Terry left Chelsea in 2017 after playing 713 times for the club since his debut in 1998.
