Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has reported informed the owner of Chelsea Roman Abramovich of his desire to take over as manager of the club when Antonio Conte ends his spell at the club.
Antonio Conte has failed replicate the same feat he achieved in his debut season with the Blues and reports are rife that he will call time on his spell with the Blues. The former Italian manager has publicly blamed his failure on the board of Chelsea for failing to land his transfer prime targets.
The Blues dropped out of the top four on the Premier League log and their recent defeat to Tottenham has reduced any glimmer of hope they were nursing at Champions League qualification.
Chelsea have been linked with various managers including Carlo Ancelotti and Thomas Tuchel and Luis Enrique but Max Allegri has emerged as front runner for the post, according to the Sun. However, the Blues may have to act swiftly as Arsenal are also in the search for a quality manager in the stead of Allegri that will replace Arsene Wenger in the long term.
Allegri has led Juventus to dominating the Seria A for some time and he is keen on a new challenge. There’s a fierce competition in the Premier League and Allegri is looking to test his mettle against the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho before the end of his career.
