Juventus want Pep Guardiola. The Serie A champions have sounded the Catalan out as Max Allegri's replacement and have made him their top target.
Zinedine Zidane has been the front runner for a while but Sport Mediaset have reported that the Old Lady would be prepared to adapt their philosophy to lure ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Guardiola, who's currently at Manchester City.
Landing Guardiola's complicated, though. He's fully bought into the project at Man City, where he has a contract until 2021 and a salary worth 23 million euros annually. In addition, City are not known for letting their stars go easily.
Guardiola's got a project in Manchester but there's one card Juve are saving: if they win Serie A and the Champions League, they could match his salary at City and it would then be up to Guardiola.
The cited media explain that the player's agent -- his brother, Pere -- has met with Juve's directors in Turin and in Milan.
Guardiola is a dream, but that was also true with Cristiano Ronaldo -- and that became a reality. Despite that, much more likely is that Zidane returns to Turin, where he spent time as a player. The Frenchman is out of work since leave Real Madrid last summer.
Zidane's salary would be much less, too, at around 7.5 million euros, the same as Allegri is currently played.
