Massimiliano Allegri agrees four-year deal with Chelsea
Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has reportedly agreed a deal with Chelsea to become the club’s next manager.
The Blues are still searching for a permanent successor to Jose Mourinho having appointed Guus Hiddink only until the end of the current campaign.
The likes of Diego Simeone, Antonio Conte, Jorge Sampaoli and outgoing Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini have all been linked with the role, but Italian website Calciomercato reports that Allegri has now agreed a four-year deal.
The report goes on to state that Allegri was Roman Abramovich’s first choice and has already been presented with a pre-contract from the Premier League outfit.
The 48-year-old, who is contracted to Juventus until 2017, won the league and cup double and reached the final of the Champions League during his debut season in charge of the Old Lady last year.
Juve got off to a slow start to the current campaign, but have since won 13 Serie A matches on the bounce to close within two points of leaders Napoli.
