Allegri set to bring his backroom staff to Chelsea

Massimiliano Allegri

Chelsea have agreed a four year deal with Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri according to reports from Italy.

The Italian manager is expected to take over from interim boss Guus Hiddink at the end of the season and Calciomercato are reporting that Allegri will bring three of his Juventus backroom staff with him to Chelsea.

The 48-year-old has agreed to become the Chelsea manager after the Blues approached him earlier this week. Allegri won the Serie A with Juventus last season and is well placed to secure the domestic title once again this season.

The Italian guided Juventus to the Champions League final last year and Chelsea will be hoping that the Juventus boss can replicate that feat with the Londoners next season.

Allegri’s assistant Marco Landucci, fitness coach Simone Folletti and physio Stefano Grani have all agreed to join Chelsea according to the report from Calciomercato and will begin their Chelsea adventure along with the Italian this summer.

Chelsea are very interested in signing the Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, who has been linked with a move away from Turin since last season. The Blues will be hoping that Allegri’s presence will give them an edge when it comes to signing the Frenchman at the end of the season.
