Antonio Conte’s future at Chelsea remains uncertain despite the Italian managing to steer the Blues’ season back on track, and Juventus boss, Massimiliano Allegri, has already agreed to replace the former Italy midfielder at Chelsea during the summer of 2018.
Despite winning the Premier League title in the 2016/17 season, Conte’s future has been in doubt over the past six months and the Italian is expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the current campaign.
A number of managers have been linked with a move to West London, and Chelsea are looking to bring in Allegri in the summer.
Reports claim that Allegri has agreed, to make the switch to England, but Juventus are said to be against allowing the 50-year-old to leave Turin before the end of his contract, which expires in 2020.
Allegri has won 137 of his 195 matches in charge of the Serie A giants since replacing Conte in July 2014, a period which includes three league and cup doubles. However, the UEFA Champions League continues to evade them, and the manager looks to take up the reins somewhere else.
Meanwhile, Antonio conte has played down reports that he could leave Chelsea. The former Juventus manager described the report as a disrespect.
He told Corriere dello Sport: “I think this is a lack of respect. I can accept [if you] write that the club is ready to sack me, the story with the players [being unhappy].
“I don’t care what the newspaper write about my future or the other person because this is our job.”
