Italian newspaper the Corriere Dello Sport has given the likelihood of Juventus manager Massmiliano Allegri staying in his post for next season at just 60%.

The Italian boss looks set to win his third consecutive Serie A title this season but rumours in Italy have been circulating for a number of months that the former Milan head coach is unhappy at the Bianconeri. He has also been heavily linked with the manager’s job at Arsenal if Arsene Wenger opts against staying at the Emirates beyond the end of this season.

The latest development surrounds the falling out between Allegri and one of the club’s key players, Leonardo Bonucci. The centre back and the manager exchanged words near the end of Juve’s 4-1 win over Palermo at the weekend and the defender was dropped for the Champions League tie against Porto tonight.

Fiorentina’s Paulo Sousa and Monaco’s Leonardo Jardim are believed to be the frontrunners, the Corriere Dello Sport reports, if Allegri leaves.
