It seems a week can’t go past without a new name being linked to the Chelsea manager’s job.
Having sacked Jose Mourinho and installed Guus Hiddink as interim manager until the end of the season, club owner Roman Abramovich is currently on the hunt for the next permanent manager
Given that Pep Guardiola appears destined for Manchester (City, but you can’t rule out United either), it appears Abramovich has written off his chances of getting Pep, and has turned his attention to Italy.
Last weekend it was reported that Chelsea had held talks with Italy boss Antonio Conte about taking over, and now the Sun claim that Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is Abramovich’s new number 1 target.
Having taken over at Juve last season, Allegri guided the Old Lady to a league and Cup double last season, as well as taking them to the Champions League final.
And with another Scudetto on the way, his CV is pretty impressive…
