The former Porto gaffer is also joined by Maurizio Sarri in the rumor mill.
Massimiliano Allegri won't at the helm of Juventus from next season onwards, drawing close to a fantastic era under the Italian tactician. With the media going full throttle in terms of his successor, it is being reported that power agent Jorge Mendes has promised to the Serie A outfit, that his client, Jose Mourinho, is available.
The former Manchester United and Chelsea gaffer managed Inter Milan, and led them to a treble. Mourinho is hated by the Bianconeri faithful, and his recent managerial results also go in their favor.
But multiple Italian media reports have stated that Mourinho is being touted as a favourite to succeed Allegri. Jorge Mendes has allegedly made guarantees to Andrea Agnelli that Mourinho's past relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo won't affect his possible tenure in Juventus.
It is also being reported that Mendes is working on Mourinho's possible arrival. Mourinho and Ronaldo had an alleged fallout during his tenure in Real Madrid. Mendes has promised to Agnelli that the duo still have a working relationship, and his arrival won't be an issue.
Juventus wrapped up another Serie A title this season, but missed out on the UEFA Champions League, after losing to Ajax. It is also being alleged that former Napoli gaffer Maurizio Sarri could also become the next Juve manager.
