Report: Max Allegri 'on the verge' of becoming Juventus' next manager


Claudio Villa

And just when you thought this whole situation regarding Antonio Conte's resignation and the immediate future of Juventuscouldn't get more and more frustrating (or any other word you want to use to describe it), it does.

Max Allegri is close to becoming Antonio Conte's replacement on the Juventus bench. So says Gianluca Di Marzio, who seems to be on the money about a lot of things this time of year. Allegri, who was sacked by Milan in mid-January after an absolutely horrid first half of the season, is reportedly set to be getting a two-year contract with the three-time defending Serie A champions.

But wait, there's more!

If everything will be defined in time, tomorrow Allegri could be at Vinovo, Juventus' training center.

Just think about it, folks. By the time Juve take the field tomorrow morning for their first training session, Max Allegri could be the one directing them. Doesn't that sound grand?

If your answer is "NO!" then you're pretty much in the same boat as everybody else.

And here's the kicker: Juventus' summer mercato is basically thrown into a complete unknown at this point. So on top of Allegri's anticipated arrival at Vinovo in the very near future, we really have no idea who will be signed this summer and when they will be presented. This just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it?
