Reports in Italy state Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri is top of Paris Saint-Germain’s shortlist to replace Unai Emery.
It’s appears certain PSG will sack the Spaniard at the end of this season, unless he succeeds in winning the Champions League.
While the capital club has won four of the past five Ligue 1 titles, success in Europe has continued to elude them that is seen as the big target for owners Qatar Sports Investments.
As pointed out by this morning’s Gazzetta dello Sport, Allegri this week reached the Last 16 of the Champions League for the eighth year in a row, showing his pedigree in Europe.
For that reason, the newspaper reports, he’s top of PSG’s shortlist to replace Emery; ahead of his compatriot Antonio Conte.
Chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi declared after Wednesday’s defeat to Bayern Munich that he was “very disappointed” with the performance, and Gazzetta reports he and the other directors are hugely impressed by Allegri.
However, the Coach is under contract until 2020 and Juventus are determined to hold onto him.
