Allegri will be leaving Juventus this summer after it was confirmed that his time at the club would be coming to an end.

In his five years at the club, Allegri managed to win 11 major trophies for Juventus – with five straight Serie A title and six cup wins.

Sarri has come under some flak this season from Chelsea supporters, despite finishing 3rd in the Premier League and taking the club to the final of the League Cup and the Europa League – with the latter to come next Wednesday.

Would Allegri be an upgrade on Sarri?
