Juventus will make Antonio Conte, the coach of Tottenham Hotspur, his first managerial target if they decide to separate from Massimiliano Allegri in the near future, 90 minutes Understood, but completing such a deal will be difficult.
The Bianconeri have had a slow start to the new season, winning just two of their opening Serie A matches and losing both Champions League group stage matches so far.
Allegri’s pragmatic style has also been called into question as he is under intense pressure to turn Juve’s fortunes around.
90 minutes He understands that some Juventus chiefs would like to replace Allegri with Conte, although the latter caused a stir on his way out of the club again in 2014.
Conte particularly wanted to sign Juan Cuadrado – ironically now at Juventus – from Fiorentina, but his request was turned down, and he was annoyed by the sale of Arturo Vidal, quitting soon after those decisions were made. He was replaced by Allegri on his first assignment at the club.
Despite his poor exit and high-profile grievances over his comeback with arch-rival Inter in recent years, Conte is on good terms with some of the Juventus hierarchy. His wife and daughter still reside in Turin.
However, Juventus’ financial problems mean that the pursuit of Conte will be somewhat difficult. They are expected to confirm annual losses estimated at 250 million euros, while sacking Allegri could cost another 36 million euros.

Furthermore, while Conte’s current deal with Tottenham expires at the end of the current season, the club retains the option of a one-year extension.
90 minutes He also understands that Tottenham would like a new contract for Conte, but talks are unlikely to start before this winter’s World Cup.
The 53-year-old was at the top of the coaching shortlist at PSG to replace Mauricio Pochettino earlier this year, but he ended up staying at Tottenham, who had an unbeaten start to the new Premier League season.
