Juventus are set to appoint the former AC Milan coach, Massimiliano Allegri as coach to replace Antonio Conte.

Allegri is to be hired on a salary of €2m (£1.6m) on a two-year deal as the club seek a fourth Serie A title in four years.

He joined Milan from Cagliari in the summer of 2010 and in his first season led them to their first Scudetto since 2004, though the Rossoneri finished second to Juventus the following year.

Allegri was sacked by Milan in January this year due to discouraging results. Milan have since then stumbled further, even after the appointment of Clarence Seedorf, who lasted less than five months, and Filippo Inzaghi.

Conte had his contract terminated by mutual consent amid suggestions that he will succeed Cesare Prandelli, as coach of the Italian national side.

Conte, who had signed a deal through to the summer of 2015 earlier this year, said that the moment was right to bid farewell.

“It may be more difficult to keep winning with Juventus,” he said.
