Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus future could be in doubt, with reports that Massimiliano Allegri will take charge.
Antonio Conte announced his resignation as Bianconeri boss last night after falling out with the club over transfer strategy.
As such, the champions have acted quickly in lining up a successor, with stories emanating that the former Milan man has agreed a two-year deal.
But that news could throw Pirlo’s future in Turin in doubt, at least according to Tuttosport.
The paper believes that the veteran midfielder could angle for a move away following their previous indiscretions.
Pirlo was shown the door at San Siro by Allegri back in 2011, but has gone on to become the lynchpin of Juve’s three title wins.
The sports daily claims that the Italy international is uneasy about working with the 46-year-old again, but the tactician is desperate to heal old wounds and keep his star man.
