Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri ‘agrees to take over at Chelsea’

Massimiliano Allegri is top of Chelsea’s shortlist to replace Antonio Conte as manager, and has already agreed to move to Stamford Bridge.

With Conte expected to leave the Premier League champions at the end of the season, reports in Italy believe the Juventus boss is the man in line to take over.

Corriere dello Sport claim that Allegri is the leading candidate for the Chelsea hotseat to replace the man he succeeded at Juventus in 2014.

The newspaper reports, though, that Juve have no intention of letting their manager go, with his contract running until 2020.

Allegri won the Serie A title in each of his first three seasons in Turin and his side currently sit second in the table, one point behind leaders Napoli.

He has also taken the Italian giants to two Champions League finals, but they lost on both occasions to Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid in 2017.

Conte took the Premier League by storm in his first season at Stamford Bridge but has struggled to replicate that form in the current campaign.

Chelsea are third in the table but 16 points behind leaders Manchester City and face Barcelona in the Champions League next month.
