Max Allegri has reportedly agreed to replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager (via The Daily Star).
It’s becoming clearer and clearer that Antonio Conte’s time at Stamford Bridge will be ending sooner rather than later.
The Italian may have won the Premier League in his first season at the club but since then, things have certainly gone downhill.
The Blues have nothing to play for this term other than the FA Cup and an outside chance at finishing in the top four of the Premier League.
Conte joined the club back in 2016 from the Italian national team after leaving Juventus.
Now, reports suggest that the man who replaced Conte at the Italian champions has agreed to replace him at Stamford Bridge, Massimiliano Allegri.
Reports in England claim that Allegri was, in fact, the man they wanted ahead of Conte back in 2016.
The story comes just a few days after Allegri was asked about his future and said: “Certainly I will go abroad. In Italy, finished.”
It’s a big story and potentially some big news for Chelsea. Antonio Conte will surely leave the Blues in the coming months and Max Allegri would be a fine replacement.
