Sassuolo confirm they are ‘evaluating’ Andrea Pirlo as their new coach, with Max Allegri due to replace him at Juventus.

The managerial merry-go-round continues today with multiple reports Allegri has snubbed Real Madrid and will return to Juve, two years after his dismissal.

That means Pirlo is no longer required after his debut coaching season, in which he won the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana.

He might not be unemployed for long, as sources including news agency ANSA and Sportitalia note Sassuolo want to bring Pirlo in after Roberto De Zerbi signed for Shakhtar Donetsk.

“Choosing a new coach is very complicated,” Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali told Il Sole 24 Ore newspaper.

“Pirlo is a young and talented coach, but we are evaluating other options too. I think we’ll make some decisions over the next few days.” claim that Sassuolo are offering Pirlo a two-year contract, with Juve possibly paying a portion of his salary in order to terminate the contract by mutual consent.
