Juventus’ Gianluigi Buffon and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard have both been linked with the Juventus coaching vacancy, with Chelsea chief executive Ivan Gazidis also expected to step in.
The Bianconeri are already preparing to launch a competition to find their next manager, with former Manchester City and Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti being one of several names to be considered.
However, both players are linked with Juventus and have also been linked to Chelsea.
Ancelotti has been linked by some with the position, while Buffon, who has spent the last two years in England, has been one of the more outspoken candidates for the job.
Juventus currently sit in second place in Serie A, with a 10-point lead over the bottom-placed Juventus and are in pole position to win the Champions League.
