Juventus head coach Max Allegri is reportedly waiting for Antonio Conte to be sacked at Chelsea before announcing his decision to step down with the Bianconeri.

The 50-year-old has been rumoured as one of the prime candidates to become the Blues' next manager with Conte facing the prospect of being dismissed at the end of the season.

Allegri has already dropped a huge hint over his next move by citing that he does not want to manage an Italian club in the future, and according to The Sun, he is said to be waiting for Conte's departure from Stamford Bridge.

Conte is seemingly on the brink of being sacked after a 3-1 Premier League defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur, but owner Roman Abramovich is likely to prolong the decision with the club still alive in the FA Cup.

The Blues entertain Southampton in the semi-final stage of the famous old competition, and anything less than a victory may witness Conte being axed before the conclusion of the season.
