New Chelsea manager could bring Paul Pogba to the Bridge


Italian website Calciomercato have let the cat out of the bag today, after revealing that Juventus trainer Massimiliano Allegri has agreed to join Chelsea in a four year deal that will see the 48-year-old Italian earn 4.5€ million per-season.

According to the article Allegri was given a pre-contract to sign by Chelsea after club owner Roman Abramovich decided he was the right man for the job, beating out Jorge Sampaoli and Antonio Conte.

The report does not mention a timeframe for Allegri to take over from interim manager Gus Hiddink, but the general consensus is that it will take place at the end of the season.

Allegri also has a strong working relation with Juventus star player Paul Pogba, and with the young Frenchman thought to be looking for a move away from Italy after Euro 2016, Allegri would be in a great position to convince the 22-year-old that his future was with him at Stamford Bridge.
