Max Allegri is unlikely to be the new Chelsea boss with Roman Abramovich having been put off the Italian.
Allegri has been out of work for over a year, leaving Juventus in the summer of 2019.
He won five consecutive Serie A titles while in Turin, also lifting the Coppa Italia on four occasions.
Though the 53-year-old is not believed to be high on Abramovich’s wish-list with Frank Lampard having been sacked by the Blues.
Allegri asked for mega money to take over at French giants PSG, believed to be wanting £10.7m a year.
Lampard was reportedly only earning £4m every 12 months at Chelsea, which was less than previous boss Maurizio Sarri’s £5.35m.

Allegri previously explained that he was learning English, having also been regularly linked to the Manchester United job.
Last February, the former AC Milan boss said: “In September I need to come back. If I don’t I’ll get too used to being on holiday and I’ll never work again!
“I still have three more months of holiday and that’s good for me.
Why Abramovich's refreshing Lampard project was nothing but false hope for Chelsea fans
“I won’t speak about my future, because there isn’t anything to talk about for now, and also because it would be disrespectful to the other coaches to do so.
“I learn English for my personal culture, because when I go I can’t communicate.”
Thomas Tuchel is expected to take over at Stamford Bridge having been sacked by PSG in December.

Following Lampard’s departure, Abramovich said: “This was a very difficult decision for the club, not least because I have an excellent personal relationship with Frank and I have the utmost respect for him.
“He is a man of great integrity and has the highest of work ethics. However, under current circumstances we believe it is best to change managers.”
