Chelsea boost as Juventus eye sensational move to make Pep Guardiola new boss instead of Zidane when Allegri leaves in summer

JUVENTUS reportedly want Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola to replace Max Allegri this summer.

And that could open the door for Chelsea to land Zinedine Zidane if they decide to axe Maurizio Sarri.

Pep Guardiola is being lined up to take charge at Juventus this summer

Sport Mediaset claims Guardiola has been lined up to take charge in Turin following Allegri’s shortcomings in the Champions League.

Juve have dominated Serie A in the last decade but they are yet to conquer Europe since their penalty shoot-out win over Ajax in 1996.

Club chiefs pulled out all the stops to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid in a shock £99million deal last summer, with many backing them as favourites for the Champions League as a result.

But Juve are on the brink of elimination from the continent’s elite competition after losing the first leg of their last-16 clash against Atletico Madrid 2-0.

And Allegri is now facing the chop as a result, paving the way for a fresh face to take control.

Guardiola has worked wonders at City, leading them to a record-breaking Premier League title last season.

But he doesn’t hang around at clubs for long either, spending just four years in charge of Barcelona and three at Bayern Munich.

And Guardiola could now decide to call time on his English adventure to lead yet another European super power.

But it’s not just Juventus who would be boosted by Guardiola’s arrival.

A move would mean Frenchman Zidane remains available for hire after being tipped by some for a return to Turin.

And Chelsea could have a free run at him with boss Sarri’s Stamford Bridge future still uncertain.

A lot also depends on the Blues’ Fifa transfer ban, which was appealed yesterday.
