Juventus have identified Chelsea manager Anonio Conte and the Blues former boss Carlo Ancelotti as the two candidates to replace Massimiliano Allegri at the Allianz Stadium, if the Old Lady coach decides to leave the club.

The Turin club still have three more fixtures in the league plus the Coppa Italia final against AC Milan. So far, Juventus’ coach has refused to discuss his future as his immediate focus is to win the domestic double.

According to the Italian publication Calciomercato, the club are already planning to find a replacement for the 50-year-old, if he decides to leave. Allegri will meet – like after the end of every season – Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli and Giuseppe Marotta to evaluate the recently concluded campaign and discuss future plans.

There’s possibility Allegri and Juventus could mutually decide to end their “existing relationship”. If the reports are to be believed, the current Serie A leaders’ manager is linked with the Arsenal job to become Arsene Wenger’s successor at the Emirates. Wenger has already decided to step down from his current position after the end of the season.

Juventus are wary they may lose Allegri and have already identified two managers who could replace him. Their former boss Conte is one of the targets, who is currently in charge at Chelsea.

The ex-Italy manager left Juventus just before the start of the 2014/15 season and was replaced by Allegri. Conte’s exit from the Turin club was not cordial, but he could still return to the club if Allegri decides to leave after this campaign.

Should this happen, he won’t be the first manager to do so in Juventus’ history. Marcello Lippi left Juventus in 1999 after managing them for five years, only to rejoin them in 2001. During these two seasons, Ancelotti was in charge of the club.

The former Milan coach is another candidate to replace Allegri, if the latter decides to leave. The 58-year-old is without a club after he sacked by Bayern in September 2017.

Juventus are only considering those managers who can help them compete in domestic and European competitions and they believe there are only a few available in the market.
