Max Allegri has begun taking English lessons in London for the Chelsea Job, according to a report today in the Sun.
Taking English lessons isn’t proof of anything, and it’s something many managers would pursue when they are without a club, but it’s certainly a hint in Chelsea’s direction.
The former Juventus boss was in charge of the Turin based giants for 5 seasons, winning 5 titles in the process, and understandably he’s decided to try a new challenge abroad, after having previously been AC Milan coach.
He is the second favourite for the Chelsea job on most sites and looks a very realistic option.
While Chelsea may shy away from yet another Italian manager, he has a lot more experience than Frank Lampard, the other prime candidate.
If Chelsea are looking for a safe option, 51-year-old Allegri is probably the man.
This all depends on Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea’s current manager of course.

Allegri’s former team reportedly want him, meaning we could potentially end up switching managers with the Old Lady.
