Juve approach Sarri, but Conte...

Juventus have reportedly contacted Maurizio Sarri to replace Max Allegri, while Pavel Nedved keeps pushing for Antonio Conte.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sportitalia, the Bianconeri see Sarri as their best option, even though he is under contract at Chelsea until 2021.

There is a long list of names of potential new Coaches, with the likes of Simone Inzaghi, Didier Deschamps, Conte, Jose Mourinho and even Sinisa Mihajlovic linked in recent days.

The current hot name is that of the former Napoli tactician, whose side were the last team to win in the Allianz Stadium in Serie A, 1-0 in April 2018.

Sarri is reportedly seen by sporting director Fabio Paratici and vice-chairman Nedved as someone who could get the best of their attacking talent and develop an attractive style of football.

Roma and Milan have also recently been linked with the 60-year-old tactician, who is preparing for the Europa League Final against local rivals Arsenal at the end of the month.

Meanwhile, multiple sources including La Repubblica and Tuttosport claim vice-president Nedved is pushing for Conte’s return to the club he left five years ago.

It’s believed Nedved is trying desperately to convince President Andrea Agnelli of the Conte plan, at the same time keeping Inter at bay after they agreed personal terms with the former Italy boss.

Nothing has yet been signed, so Conte is thought to be waiting for a sign from Juve.
