Juventus near Pochettino deal as they search for illusive Champions League title

It’s another season, and another title victory for Juventus. The Bianconeri secured the record 35th Scudetto, but again failed to reach their real goal of winning the UEFA Champions League.
The continuation of the dominance in Serie A, where Juventus has been champion for eight seasons, five of which have Allegri’s merit, was not enough to keep the ex Genoa man in Turin. The Italian won’t be manager of Juventus next season due to their failure in the Champions League where Ajax knocked them out in the quarter-finals, proving the Champions League illusive again, despite the club spending 100 euros on Cristiano Ronaldo last summer.
Many big managerial names have been linked with Juve in the past few days. According to one British bookmaker, for example, main candidates include Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, free agent Antonio Conte, PSG’s Laurent Blanc, Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri, Atletico’s Diego Simeone, out of work Jose Mourinho and even Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola was also one of the candidates for the job, but he appears to have made it clear that he wants to stay in Manchester and sign a new contract.
Some media have already carried the news that the negotiations with Mauricio Pochettino are in an advanced stage, but it often proves difficult to negotiate with his club Tottenham.
Pochettino signed a contract with Tottenham last year for a net worth of 7m euros, and while Juventus are offering more, the problem could be the 40m release clause payable to Spurs.
The problem is that Daniel Levy represents a hard negotiator, and even if Juventus are ready to pay a part of the clause, it’s possible that after the Champions League final, the Argentinian’s agent, as well as Pochettino himself, will immediately announce the wish to leave the club and to go on a bigger challenge, forcing Tottenham’s hand. According to some information, Pavel Nedved is confident that Pochettino or Sarri will be a new manager for Juventus, and also there is a rumour that Lazio’s Simeone Inzaghi has agreed to take the job should negotiations for Pochettino and Sarri come to nothing.
