The Manchester City man is new favourite to replace the departing Max Allegri as the Italian giants continue their search for Champions League glory

Pep Guardiola has installed as odds-on favourite to be Juventus’ new manager following a report from Italy that a deal will soon be confirmed.

Manchester City completed an unprecedented domestic treble only days ago by beating Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup final but William Hill make the manager just 8/11 (1.73) to replace the outgoing Massimiliano Allegri.

Guardiola, who has led City to back-to-back Premier League titles and a combined 198 points over the last two campaigns, signed a contract extension at the English club just last year that runs until summer 2021.

The Champions League still eludes the Citizens, though, with a quarter-final exit in each of the last two seasons following a last 16 defeat in Guardiola’s first campaign at the club.

Juventus have similar ambitions but Allegri’s failure to capture the coveted European crown, despite reaching the final twice, means he will leave the club at the end of this season.

William Hill also offer 4/1 (5.0) on Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri taking over at the Italian giants, as reported by Goal amidst a period of uncertainty surrounding his future ahead of the Europa League final on May 29.

Despite a third-place finish in the Premier League and a European final, the Italian has reportedly struggled to connect with the club's fans and his style of play has also come under scrutiny.

Sarri had managed in Italy for all of his career prior to moving to Stamford Bridge in July 2018 and now could be set for a return to his homeland after just one year away.

It is 9/1 (10.0) that Jose Mourinho joins Juventus, over six months since being sacked as Manchester United manager following a poor first half to the season.

The Portuguese has managed in Italy before, leading Inter to a treble that included the Champions League, and a move to Juve would see him reunited with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Antonio Conte, who is yet to return to management since leaving Chelsea in July 2018, is 10/1 (11.0) whilst the online bookmaker goes 12/1 (13.0) that the Serie A champions poach Simone Inzaghi from Lazio.
