Cagliari coach Massimiliano Allegri is fast emerging as new favourite for the troubled Juventus post.

Cagliari coach Massimiliano Allegri is fast emerging as new favourite for the troubled Juventus post.

Tuttosport says Allegri and Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez are the top two candidates for the job.

In Allegri's advantage is that he will cost a lot less for Juve to prise away from Cagliari and also the cost of his own backroom team will not be as demanding.

Allegri will insist on Juve playing a 4-3-1-2 formation, which will suit Diego - and also the Juve board, which has no intention of dumping the Brazilian given the amount they invested in him last summer.
