Former AC Milan and Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed interest in managing Chelsea, according to reports.
Chelsea may be without Italian boss Maurizio Sarri, who has reportedly asked to leave Chelsea in order to further his career with the Old Lady.
Juventus are shopping for a manager following the departure of Allegri, who despite dominating the Italian league decided to leave club and appears Sarri would return to Italy with Juve.
Several names have been thrown into the fray as possible replacement for Sarri at Chelsea including Frank Lampard, Steve Holland and Roberto Martinez. However, Allegri may stand the biggest chance of bagging the job due to his experience.
According to Starsport, Allegri is eyeing the job and he has informed his friends of his desire if Sarri eventually leaves. We understand that Sarri is not given a free hand over all of the footballing affairs of Chelsea and this has turned him off greatly.
Following their victory over Arsenal in the Europa League, Sarri was asked about his future with the Blues and he said:
“In my opinion, I deserve to stay at Chelsea but my opinion is not enough.
“I have a contract [for another two years]. At the moment, we are talking about nothing.”
