Barcelona have been in contact with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri to ask if he would be interested in replacing Luis Enrique at the end of the season, according to reports in Spain.
Mundo Deportivo claim that Allegri was asked by Barcelona if he plans to renew his contract with Juventus and whether he has received any other offers from rival clubs.
It’s also claimed that Barca’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, got in touch with Allegri’s agent, Giovanni Branchini, shortly after Luis Enrique announced he will step down at the end of the season.
Barca held talks with Allegri before their quarter-final tie against Juventus but negotiations have continued.

Barcelona’s director Ariedo Braida is also close friends with Allegri and has held informal talks with the Italian.
Juventus, meanwhile, are keen to extend Allegri’s contract, which will have just a year remaining this summer.
