Will Massimiliano Allegri replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager?
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has revealed he is ‘finished in Italy’ and wants to move abroad for his next job, amid reports linking him to Chelsea.
There is renewed speculation over Antonio Conte’s future at Stamford Bridge following Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at home to Tottenham.
That result – Spurs’ first league win at the Bridge since 1990 – has all-but destroyed the Blues’ hopes of finishing in the top four and qualifying for Champions League football.
Conte apparently ‘can’t wait to leave’ Chelsea and the boss is widely expected to go in the summer.
And, according to the Sun, the Blues are planning to replace him with fellow Italian Allegri.
Allegri, who ironically replaced Conte in Turin four years ago, recently revealed he is already looking ahead to his career after Juventus
“Certainly I will go abroad,” the 50-year-old said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph.
“In Italy, [I’m] finished.”
Allegri has previously been linked with replacing Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, but it is claimed Chelsea is now his more likely next destination and that he is ‘all set’ to replace Conte at Stamford Bridge.
