Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri prepares for Premier League move with English lessons – report

by Ben Topliss

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri could make a move to the Premier League after it emerged that he is starting English lessons, according to the Daily Mirror.

Allegri lead Juventus to a fourth straight Serie A title last season as well as the Champions League final, where they were defeated by Barcelona.

The Italian has 18 months remaining on his contract at Juventus, who started this season poorly but now sit in fourth in the league table.

Manchester United and Chelsea are both said to have Allegri on their radars, although Chelsea are said to be more keen as they search for a new permanent manager to take over this summer following the departure of Jose Mourinho.

Louis van Gaal is under huge pressure at Old Trafford after overseeing an eight game winless run and the speculation over potential replacements is increasing.

Mourinho and Pep Guardiola have also been mooted as options for Man United should they choose to sack the Dutchman. Whatever decision they make is likely to be a crucial one as it could shape United’s success for the coming years.
