Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte Feud Blasted by Fabio Capello

Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte Feud Blasted by Fabio Capello

But despite all the rumours swirling around, Allegri doesn't even feature in the top-3 contenders in the betting, with the Italian an 8/1 shot to become the next Chelsea manager.

Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly on Chelsea's shortlist to replace Antonio Conte, but Juventus have no intention of letting him go. Maurizio Sarri, who has led Napoli to the top of Serie A, has also been considered but Diego Simeone is expected to be hard to prise away from Atletico Madrid.

However, Conte will know all too well that the lifespan of Chelsea managers is short.

The report claims that Allegri has agreed, in principle, to make the switch to England, but Juventus are said to be against allowing the 50-year-old to leave Turin before the end of his contract, which expires in 2020. He has ambitions to work outside Italy.

It's no secret that the trigger-happy Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, loves a fresh face in the dugout. It's the Premier League manager version of the east coast versus west coast hip-hop beef from the 1990s.

Allegri has a job on his hands over in Serie A at the moment; his side, so used to dominating the league in recent seasons, are now second in the table at the halfway point.

Conte has been strongly linked with taking over at Paris St Germain, while reports that Zinedine Zidane could be moved on at Real Madrid will lead to talk of him taking over at the Bernabeu.

Antonio Conte has established an undeniable connection with the Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge and around the world and his name is often sung during Chelsea matches.

The Blues manager is in the second of a three year deal, but tension has grown between Conte and the board over complaints about transfer policy. "It can take three or four years to find big players, but when they have them, they'll bring them up".

Meanwhile, Chelsea have appointed Guy Laurence as chief executive, a job title vacant since Ron Gourlay left the club in October 2014, with responsibilities for day-to-day operations at the club and commercial activities.
