Although Massimiliano Allegri is on the verge of leaving Juventus, the Serie A club is ready to grant Thiago Motta a two-year contract with an option for another season. Juventus director Giuntoli decided on Bologna manager Thiago Motta as the right coach for the Bianconeri's ambition, and various Italian publications, including Gazzetta, say the Serie A club is ready to hand the ex-Italy international an agreement for two years.

The agreement would involve a possibility for a subsequent campaign. Il Corriere della Sera claimed on Wednesday that Motta was going to sign a €3.5 million contract at Turin. Motta has achieved Champions League qualification for Bologna this year, and his deal at the Stadio Dall'Ara expires in June.

According to the Gazzetta, Motta has been unable to meet with Bologna officials to negotiate a possible extension, however he has reportedly told the Bianconeri that he is willing to relocate to Turin. Motta is regarded as an outstanding choice, not just because of his football style, but additionally because he has demonstrated exceptional talent development skills.

Juventus has also been linked with Bologna's Riccardo Calafiori and Joshua Zirkzee, and Motta's hiring would fuel the Old Lady's desire even more. If the previous Inter and PSG playmaker accepts the offer, he will be paid 3.5 million euros per year including net wages. According to the source, Juventus is currently focusing on tomorrow's Coppa Italia final versus Atalanta and is keeping a low profile about the operation.

Who will replace Thiago Motta at Bologna?

Former Lazio, Chelsea, and Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to take over from Thiago Motta if he departs Bologna during the summer. The Rossoneri have already qualified for the Champions League for the very first time in history, and they are considering the futures of their players, including Motta himself.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via TMW), Motta has expressed interest in Manchester United in addition to Juventus. After Bologna's next game against Juventus, club owner Joey Saputo is going to meet with Motta to discuss his future with the club.
