Juventus failed to win their last match, drawing 1:1 with Empoli and thus failing to take the lead in Serie A, but they will have another chance on Sunday. Then the Bianconeri welcome league-leaders Inter in a much anticipated derby d’Italia. The Italian media outlet Gazzeta delo Sport reveals that Juve’s board is very close to offering manager Maximiliano Allegri a new contract. The coach was facing the axe last season, but not only has managed to fulfil the minimum expectations of a top 4 finish, but he has also transformed the team into a title contenders.

Allegri’s current deal expires in 2025, but all the signs show that he will be offered a new contract. He is currently in his second spell with Juve, with the first one being between 2014 and 2019. The 59 year old gaffer was re-appointed in May of 2021 and led the team to a 4th-placed finish in 2022 and a year later, Juve ended up in 7th position, thus missing on European football. After his return in 2021, Allegri has been in charge of 132 matches, recording 76 victories, 26 draws, and 30 losses.
