Italian Allegri all set to sign for Chelsea after Maurizio Sarri tells club he wants out!?
Chelsea could seek to acquire the services of Max Allegri after Maurizio Sarri reportedly told the club that he wants to leave.
Despite leading Chelsea to two finals and back inside the top four of the Premier League, there has been a lot of talk in the media suggesting that Chelsea could sack Maurizio Sarri even after he won the Europa League title just a few days ago.
There have been many reports in the media over the past few months which have suggested that Sarri does not get on with the Chelsea hierarchy, as some of his tactical decisions and playing style have been questioned.
And now Sky in Italy claims the 60-year-old met with Blues director Marina Granovskaia on Friday and said he would like to return to Italy, as Juventus have reportedly offered him a move to Seria A, after Allegri departed the club earlier this month.
And that could mean that Chelsea make a move to try and sign Allegri, who is keen on a move to the Premier League and is eager to get back into management.
Allegri has led Juventus to four successive league and cup doubles and two Champions League finals during his spell in charge, but reports have claimed that Juventus are eager to get back into the habit of challenging and then winning the Champions League titles.
Teams from England and Spain have been dominating the Champions League title over the past decade, and Juventus have seen their status as one of Europes best become a bit lax over the past few seasons, despite dominance in Seria A.
There has been a lot of speculation on Sarri and it is very unfair, especially as the Italian boss has done a pretty decent job at Stamford Bridge considering the squad he has had to work with.
But if Chelsea are looking for a new manager, then there are not too many better than Allegri, who is regarded as one of the best in the business.
He is up there with the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino and Pep Guardiola and although many fans would love to see legend Frank Lampard head back to the club, Allegri is the man that will bring success to the club.
But that is if Sarri leaves.
