Reports in Italy suggest Conte wants to replace Allegri as Juventus boss

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is reportedly keen to return to Juventus as pressure mounts on Max Allegri, according to reports in Italy.

Allegri is under pressure following a poor start to the season at Juventus, who are eighth in Serie A after winning just two of their opening seven league fixtures. The Turin side have also opened their Champions League campaign with back-to-back defeats.

Conte managed Juventus for three seasons between 2011 and 2014 and won three consecutive league titles with his former side, beginning a period of dominance that saw the Bianconeri crowned Serie A champions for nine straight seasons.

According to Italian journalist Fabiana Della Valle, via the Express, Conte is keen on a return to the club should Allegri be dismissed.

Della Valle told the TuttoJuve Podcast that Conte would be open to a return to Turin ahead of a planned board meeting at Juventus in the coming weeks, having also made 420 appearances for the club during his plating career.

The 53-year-old has impressed at Tottenham since taking charge last November. He guided the north Londoners to Champions League qualification last season and has made a strong start to the new campaign, with Spurs unbeaten after seven Premier League fixtures.
