Massimiliano Allegri is set to replace Andrea Pirlo as manager of Juventus, Goal can confirm.


An agreement has been reached for Allegri to return to Turin, with the 53-year-old having departed the club in 2019 to make way for Maurizio Sarri.

What's the latest?

Juventus have moved to replace Pirlo as their head coach after a dismal 2020-21 season that has seen the club dethroned as champions of Serie A and struggle to make significant progress in the Champions League.


The Bianconeri finished fourth in the table, only securing Champions League qualification in their final game, while they were surprisingly knocked out of Europe's premier club competition by Porto at the last-16 stage.


Pirlo did manage to guide Juve to success in both the Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia, but that was not enough to keep him in the job.


Instead, the Juve hierarchy, led by chairman Agnelli, have decided to bring back former coach Allegri after a two-year absence.


Allegri departed in 2019 having secured the Serie A title by an 11-point margin, his fourth top-flight triumph in a row, with the Turin club's Champions League struggles - that saw them lose out to Ajax in the quarter-finals - seen as a primary reason for his exit.


With Juve having failed to significantly progress under either Sarri or Pirlo, they have now elected to hand the reins back to the 53-year-old, with an official announcement to follow.
