Juventus chief Pavel Nedved is eager to welcome former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte back to the team as Massimiliano Allegri’s replacement.

After Andrea Pirlo left, 55-year-old Allegri took over again in the Old Lady’s hot seat following his trophy-laden tenure from 2014 to 2019.

The Bianconeri could only manage a fourth-place finish last year as AC Milan won the championship; Allegri took over after the 2020–21 season, during which Inter Milan won the Scudetto.

Juventus has likewise had a poor start to the new campaign, taking just two of their first seven Serie A matches to sit eighth in the early standings.

The Old Lady have a lot to climb to advance to the knockout stages after suffering back-to-back Champions League losses to Benfica and Paris Saint-Germain.

In order to get back to his car after Juventus’ 1-0 loss to newly promoted Monza on Sunday, Allegri was escorted by security personnel.

Allegri’s deal at the Allianz Stadium runs through the summer of 2025, although the Daily Mail reports that Nedved is eager to re-sign Conte.

With Juventus, Conte won three straight Serie A championships, but he is rumored to have had disagreements with chairman Andrea Agnelli because he felt the 46-year-old did not support him enough in the transfer market.

Between 2011 and 2012, the Tottenham Hotspur manager was in charge at the Allianz Stadium. He then swiftly relocated back to Turin, where he remained until 2014.

The report adds that the Italian would have previously gotten back to Juventus had Agnelli not been at the club, however, the Bianconeri administrator might hope to let bygones be bygones with Conte was given Allegri’s unfortunate beginning to the season.

Conte was at first tipped to leave Tottenham amid their battles in 2021-22, yet he eventually drove the Lilywhites back into the Champions League.

With five victories and two draws through their first seven Premier League games under Conte, Tottenham has moved up to third place in the standings, behind Manchester City and Arsenal.
