Massimiliano Allegri has replaced Chelsea manager Antonio Conte at the top of Paris Saint-Germain’s wish list to replace Unai Emery. The Ligue 1 heavyweights are reportedly preparing to sack Emery unless he can win this season’s Champions League and they are already assessing potential successors.
Chelsea’s Conte has emerged as one of PSG’s preferred options, especially with the Italian’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge under question this term. Chelsea are nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City and some reports this season have suggested that Conte may not be in charge for too much longer.
However PSG have now cooled their interest in Conte and are instead hoping to tempt Juventus manager Allegri into taking over. Allegri remains under contract at Juve until 2020 so it would require a hefty compensation package to prise him away from the club.
