Juventus have confirmed Massimiliano Allegri will not be their manager next season and their director of football Fabio Paratici said the club has “clear ideas” on appointing Allegri’s successor, but stressed it “takes patience”.

Tuesday’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport believes the Old Lady are chasing a manager who is contracted to another club and is in a race to win a trophy.

Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea will take on London rivals Arsenal led by Unai Emery in the Europa League final, while Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool face Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final.

Sarri and Pochettino are getting the attention, although the former is highlighted more.

It’s claimed the Blues are ‘seriously’ thinking about Frank Lampard as their next manager and in order to bring him to Stamford Bridge, they will have to end up freeing Sarri. This is likely to come as positive news for Juve, who appreciate his style of play.

GdS explain Juventus will have a better picture on whether Sarri will be their next manager towards the end of May/early July.

Corriere dello Sport also talk about Sarri’s link to the Turin club and they further go on to suggest he is in ‘pole’ position ahead of other managerial targets.

The west London club’s manager has been on the radar of AS Roma, AC Milan and now Juventus.

The contacts have been ‘initiated’ and taking the coach away from the Blues ‘would not be a problem’ for three reasons.

CdS explains it could be a mutual decision between Chelsea and Sarri to end their relationship after the Europa League final, even though he still has two more years left on his contract at Stamford Bridge.

The second reason is down to the English club’s transfer ban, still waiting for a judgment from CAS.

The third is the relationship between the two clubs, it’s ‘so solid’ and Gonzalo Higuain’s January transfer is taken as an example.

Corriere claims the truth about Sarri’s link to Juventus will be known in the next eight days.
