Allegri is all set to step in when fellow Italian Antonio Conte is sacked by Chelsea this summer
The Juventus manager, Max Allegri, has fuelled rumours that he will succeed Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager when the latter is sacked at the end of the season.
Asked of his plans, Allegri said: “Certainly I’ll go abroad. In Italy, finished.”
Conte has been at loggerheads with the Blues’ board over their transfer policy.
Many would recall that it was Allegri who succeeded Conte at Juventus.
It is now clear that Allegri — who is learning English — has his eyes on a London club this summer.
He told the Daily Telegraph: “Probably I would like to carry on being a club coach for another five of six years, then I would like to coach a national team.”
