Jose Mourinho and six other candidates to replace Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus
A look at the managers who may be on the Serie A club's radar as they aim for Uefa Champions League glory next season

Filippo Inzaghi: The former Juventus striker enjoyed a stellar career at the Old Lady, scoring 89 goals in four seasons in Turin and helping them win the 1998 scudetto. Has managed managed AC Milan, Venezia and Bologna over the five years but was dismissed by the latter in January.
Didier Deschamps, centre, led France to a World Cup triumph last year, but may be tempted by the offer of a second crack at managing Juventus. The Frenchman endured a miserable time at the helm in the 2006/07 season after Juve were relegated to Serie B for their part in a match-fixing scandal. Like Inzaghi was a successful player at the club, winning three Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia and thrice a losing finalist in Champions League finals from 1996 to 1998.

Jurgen Klopp: The German's future could well be determined by the result of the Uefa Champions League final on June 1. Should Liverpool beat Tottenham in Madrid, he will almost certainly stay at Anfield and set his sights on capturing an English league title that has eluded the Merseysiders for 30 years.

The question likely being asked in the Italian city of Turin is who will replace manager Massimiliano Allegri, who
is departing Serie A champions Juventus at the end of this season.
Allegri held meetings with the club's hierarchy earlier in the week during which a clear disagreement between the two parties emerged.
What the disagreement was, it is unclear yet, but Juventus will look for a manager who will give Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates the best chance of winning the Uefa Champions League title next season - something Allgeri was unable to do during his otherwise successful five-year stint.
Juve have won eight Serie A titles on the trot, but they lifted the last of their two European Cup titles in 1995/96.
Take a look at the slideshow above at who would be in the frame to replace Allgeri.
