Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has reportedly agreed to renew his contract and stay at the club until 2018.
The 48-year-old’s future has been the subject of speculation although the club and coach have used the relative quiet of the international break to discuss matters.
According to Tuttosport, Allegri has a good relationship with sporting director Giuseppe Marotta and the duo have reached a deal in principle.
The incumbent Juve boss is yet to sign but he is expected to put pen to paper and stay until 2018 which is a one-year extension on his contract which expires in 2017.
Allegri was thought to be unsure about committing to Juventus but recent negotiations have reportedly persuaded the Italian to stay where he is.
The former AC Milan coach took on the Bianconeri job in July 2014 where he won the Coppa Italia, Serie A and reached the Champions League final in his debut season.
