Inter Milan are reportedly considering making Massimiliano Allegri their new manager for next season along with Antonio Conte.
The Nerazzurri’s patience with current coach Luciano Spalletti appears to be reaching its end on the back of their failure to challenge for the league title this season.
The two-time Serie A Manager of the Year was given substantial backing in last summer’s transfer window to boost his squad for the current campaign with the likes of Radja Nainggolan and Lautaro Martinez being signed.
But hopes of a first league crown since 2010 appear to be a very unlikely prospect for Inter with the club currently trailing unbeaten leaders Juventus by 22 points in third following Friday’s 2-1 defeat to Cagliari.
Inter also suffered a group stage exit in the Champions League after blowing it in the final game by failing to beat PSV Eindhoven at the San Siro and were knocked out of the Coppa Italia quarter-finals by Lazio.
Due to this, Jose Mourinho had been linked with a return to Inter for next season after leaving Manchester United in December.
The Portuguese coach was in charge of Inter between 2008 to 2010 and led them to becoming the first Italian club to win the treble after success in the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League.
But Tuttosport claims that former Juventus director Beppe Marotta, who joined Inter in December, is interested in reuniting with Allegri at the San Siro for next season.
Since taking charge of the Old Lady in 2014, Allegri has won domestic doubles in all of his four seasons in charge with an impressive record of 184 victories in 255 matches.
On the back of the Bianconeri’s 2-0 first-leg defeat to Atletico Madrid in their last-16 Champions League tie, however, there have been questions surrounding Allegri’s future in Turin.
Former Italian coach Giovanni Galeone recently even stated that “Allegri’s adventure at Juve is over” no matter how they do in the Champions League.
Tuttosport also went on to state that Spalletti will definitely leave this summer and that former Chelsea and Juventus coach Antonio Conte is also in contention.
Although it’s understood that Allegri would prefer to go to a foreign league if he were to leave Juventus with Manchester United and Real Madrid having been touted as possible destinations.
