Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is already learning English as he eyes a potential move to succeed either Guus Hiddink at Chelsea or Louis van Gaal at Manchester United in 2016, according to reports from The Mirror.
The Italian tactician is currently in charge of the Old Lady and scooped the Serie A title and Coppa Italia in 2014/15 after succeeding Antonio Conte, while also guiding the black and white clad-outfit to the Champions League Final – where they were beaten by Barcelona.
However, reports claim that he’s already looking to leave Turin next year, with the uncertain positions in United and Chelsea’s dugouts of interest.
It’s understood that Allegri is learning English in a bid to make himself a more attractive proposition for both clubs, as he’s aware that changes at Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford are possible.
Van Gaal is currently in his second season in charge at United, but after limping into the top four last term the ‘dull’ brand of football his team plays and some below par results in recent weeks has seen speculation surrounding his role at the club heighten to the point that he stormed out of a press conference over the festive period.
Hiddink succeeded Jose Mourinho at Chelsea earlier this month, but the Dutchman is only in west London on an interim basis.
Prior to his spell at Juventus, Allegri also won the Italian title with AC Milan.
