In a case of one Italian manager out, another Italian manager in, Chelsea have reportedly agreed terms with Massimiliano Allegri to become the club’s next manager next summer.
The Corriere dello Sport in Italy claim the Juventus manager is on his way to Stamford Bridge when the season ends despite another manager currently in the hot seat at the club.
Antonio Conte has had his frustrations well spelled out to the club after last summer’s issues in the transfer window. The club had failed to get most of their main targets in the window while the season has been characterized by poor performances and results to with it.
Conte, has been linked with the Italy national team job and this latest development, if proven true, will clear the way for him to return as Italy boss.
Allegri took over from Conte as Juve boss in 2014 and has guided the Turin giants to the Serie A triumph three times in succession, while featuring in the final of the Champions League twice, although losing to Barcelona and Real Madrid on both counts. Adding to the Serie A titles, Allgeri has won the Coppa Italia on three occasions and won the Italian Super Cup once.
It will not be easy for Chelsea to have their man though as the report by the paper indicates Juve have no interntions to allow Allegri break his current deal which expires in 2020.
