Massimiliano Allegri is ready to take over at Chelsea FC next season, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Juventus boss is poised to succeed Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge as the Blues look for a new manager.

Conte has found himself under intense pressure in recent months following his side’s stuttering form in all competitions.

Chelsea FC slumped to a disappointing 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Sunday to further dent their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

The west London club are currently fifth in the table and eight points behind fourth-placed Spurs with just seven games left to play, meaning that Champions League football for next season is looking unlikely.

According to the same article, Allegri is “all set” to take over from Conte at Stamford Bridge ahead of next season.

The story says that Conte is aware that his time at Chelsea FC is coming to an end, but the Blues are unlikely to part company with him before the summer.

Chelsea FC could still end the season with a trophy as they prepare to take on Southampton in the FA Cup semi-finals later this month.
