Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has reportedly already agreed to make the switch to Chelsea during the summer and replace Antonio Conte.

Despite finishing last season with winning the Premier League title, Conte’s future remains in doubt over the past six months and as it stands, the former Juventus boss is expected to leave the defending champions at the end of the 2017/18 season.

A number of managers have been linked with taking over Antonio Conte’s job and according to Corriere dello Sport, current Juventus head-coach Massimiliano Allegri seems to be his favoured destination.

The report claims that Juventus boss has agreed, in principle, to make a move to England. However, Serie A champions are believed to be against allowing the 50-year-old to leave the Allianz Stadium until 2020.

Allegri has won 137 of his 195 games in charge of Juventus since replacing Antonio Conte in July 2014, a period which includes three league and cup doubles.

Chelsea are currently struggling to defend the Premier League title with 16 points separating them from league leaders Manchester City and now all their attention has been turned to Champions League tie against Barcelona.
