Mancini, Spalletti Juve’s plan B?

As speculation centres on Antonio Conte meeting with Andrea Agnelli, reports are that Roberto Mancini or Luciano Spalletti may be Juventus’ plan B.

Bianconero President Agnelli is seen as set to meet with the club’s current Coach to discuss his future beyond this summer, following continued rumours on the 44-year-old’s intentions and on from his refusal at the weekend to commit himself publicly to the club.

Tuttosport are running the line that talks between Agnelli and Conte will be held on Friday and that neither party is ‘in a rush’ nor ‘anxious’ heading into this proposed talks and that both are thinking along the same lines.

The Gazzetta dello Sport suggest those lines include a possible revolution of the playing staff, to begin a new three-year cycle to push towards greater success in European competition.

Tuttosport, meanwhile, also report today that in the possibility of seeing Conte walk away this summer, Juve are drawing up a list of likely replacements and the most notable name apparently on there at the moment is former Inter Coach Roberto Mancini’s.

The Corriere dello Sport indicate that Luciano Spalletti is another prominent name on that list.
