Zidane Still in Contention to Succeed Allegri at Juventus

Massimiliano Allegri’s future at Juventus looks bleak as the Bianconeri struggle to meet their season targets following their 15-point deduction. Several top names have been linked with succeeding Allegri, but there is one in particular that has Juventus fans on their feet – Zinedine Zidane.

According to latest reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport (via 90min), the former Real Madrid man, who is currently a free agent, is linked to a return to Juventus after two decades. The Frenchman is reportedly eager to return to coaching after almost two years out of the game, having last been active at the end of May 2021.

Zidane is not short of suitors who are seeking to bolster their dugout. Paris Saint-Germain have been linked to signing him to replace Christophe Galtier. France eventually kept Didier Deschamps, while the iconic midfielder duly rejected taking over the Brazilian national team.

Real Madrid is the only club Zidane has helmed in his managerial career so far. Any talk about his move to Juventus is only futuristic, and only time will tell if Juventus ponder to part ways with Allegri. Much of how proceedings pan out will depend on the Bianconeri’s performances until the end of the season.

The iconic midfielder spent five years in Turin, scoring 31 goals in 214 appearances for Juventus, etching himself as one of the best midfielders of his generation before moving to Real Madrid in a then world-record move.
