Roman Abramovich has put a contract on the table for Juventus boss
Chelsea have made a formal offer for Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, according to his former-coach Giovanni Galeone.
The Italian is believed to be high on Roman Abramovich‘s candidate list and according to Galeone a ‘truly fantastic’ offer has been made by the Russian for the Juve boss.
Allegri has already spoken out about his own future, and has refused to rule anything out, but Galeone believes his future is at Stamford Bridge and not with The Old Lady.
Galeone is seen as Allegri’s mentor after the two worked together, and he believes his future is in the Premier League rather than with Juventus.
Truly Fantastic Offer
“Allegri is certainly among the five best coaches in the world. I think he will leave Juve because the offer from Chelsea is truly fantastic.
“For me, it would make no sense staying in Italy. Like I said, I think he will leave Juventus and I can see him doing very well in England.
“He’s doing an incredible job, considering that in the summer Juventus did not sign anybody who he had asked for, such as [Mario] Gotze, Isco or the others.”
Should Allegri choose to leave Juventus, Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is being linked as he is set to leave the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season.
