JUVENTUS’ Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid has reportedly cast doubt on Max Allegri and Paulo Dybala’s future.
Tuttosport claims Chelsea target Zinedine Zidane is standing by to take charge at his former club if they crash out of Europe during next month’s last-16 second-leg clash in Turin.
Juventus suffered a shock 2-0 loss in the Spanish capital this week, despite being tipped by many as potential winners at the start of the season.
Allegri spent nearly £100million to bring in Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, also paying the superstar nearly £550,000-a-week in wages.
However, it was Antoine Griezmann and Co who had the strongest say in the first-leg battle at the Wanda Metropolitano.
And Allegri could be cast aside in favour of Zidane as Juve look to conquer Europe for the first time since 1996.

However, there could also be a clear-out involving some big names at the club.
The report adds that Paulo Dybala is in danger of being shunted aside.
While Alex Sandro and Mario Mandzukic could also be sold in order to free up space for new arrivals.
Juventus have already secured Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer, but are sure to pursue more targets ahead of the summer transfer window.
