Massimliano Allegri Just A Few Steps Away From Chelsea Job

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is inching closer to taking over the reins at Chelsea.

The Blues are set to part ways with current manager Antonio Conte after a rather underwhelming campaign this season. Chelsea is currently in 5th place in the Premier League and is likely to finish out of the top 4, which means no Champions League football for next season. Barcelona broke Chelsea hearts in the Champions League Round of 16 and fierce local rivals Arsenal knocked Chelsea out of the Carabao Cup in the semi-finals.

The FA Cup remains their only hope of silverware to win this season which has caused a great rift between the board and manager Antonio Conte. Therefore, Chelsea is looking to recruit a new manager for next season despite the Italian boss guiding the Stamford Bridge outfit to the Premiership in his debut season last term. Chelsea has reportedly identified the man to take up the job and he is none other than Conte’s compatriot Maximiliano Allegri.

Inside News-

According to Metro, Allegri is in line to replace Conte at Chelsea. Juventus are currently on their way to a record seventh consecutive Serie A title and Allegri has insisted that he wants to manage a club abroad, away from his native Italy, as his next challenge. The 50-year-old is ready to head for West London because the Juventus board has decided to replace him with current Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

Zidane Juventus Allegri
Zidane is a serial champion and would be a great fit at his previous club

The Frenchman has not had a great campaign in the La Liga but is on course to win the Champions League for the third time in a row. Real Madrid is planning to recruit a new boss for next season which could see Zidane, who has admired his love and admiration for Juventus, take control of the Italian giants.

Author’s Take-

I could certainly see Conte being sacked at the end of the season and Allegri taking up his job. I also think that Zidane would love to coach Juventus, but a lot depends on the remainder of this season and how the respective club boards decide on how each club wants to progress.
