The shadow of Luciano Spalletti is looming large over Juventus again after last night's Champions League humiliation. Juve were dumped out of the competition by Bayern Munich after collapsing 4-1 at home - having actually taken the lead through David Trezeguet.

Turin sources have told that former Roma coach Spalletti is in the frame for a move to Juve.

Lega Calcio rules say Spalletti cannot take another Italian coaching job this season after leaving Roma in September, however he can join the Bianconeri in a technical capacity, working above Ciro Ferrara before taking over the reigns for season 2010/11.

Juve's board favour Spalletti, though aren't ready to make any immediate decision after Ferrara's team shocked Inter Milan on Saturday night.
