Massimiliano Allegri agrees a two-year deal with Juventus, replaces Antonio Conte [Gazzetta Dello Sport]

According to Italian pink paper Gazzetta Dello Sport, Juventus have moved swiftly to replace outgoing manager Antonio Conte by appointing Massimiliano Allegri.

Allegri is rumoured to have agreed a two-year deal in Turin, worth €2m per season.

The 46-year-old manager has been out of a job since he was fired from AC Milan back in January.

Many Juventus fans will likely greet the news of Allegri’s appointment with disdain as, save for winning the Scudetto in his first season in charge, Allegri largely failed to deliver in the hotseat.

Moreover, Allegri stands accused of having his teams play bland, turgid football, and many will question his ability to make Juventus in a top, top team.
