Juventus are likely to appoint Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri as the successor to Max Allegri but they are still dreaming of Champions League finalists Mauricio Pochettino and Jurgen Klopp.

According to Sky in Italy, Sarri is the clear favourite to take over, but no announcement will be made until after the Champions League final; there is a chance that Pochettino will choose to leave Spurs after Saturday’s final in Madrid.

They claim ‘the club are keen to keep all options open to them in the unlikely event a last-minute approach for Klopp or Pochettino becomes an option’.

Sarri is said to have met with Juventus officials last week with a view to replacing Allegri, while the Italian’s agent is set to meet Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia on Thursday.

Chelsea have been very keen to inform the media that they are not actively looking to end Sarri’s spell at Chelsea, but they would not fight any approach from Juventus that would earn them compensation and save them paying off Sarri.
