Massimiliano Allegri could succeed Walter Mazzarri as Napoli manager if the 51-year-old decides to take a sabbatical at the end of the season.
Napoli have reportedly shortlisted AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri as a possible replacement for Walter Mazzarri, should he choose to leave the Partenopei at the end of the season.
The 51-year-old recently hinted that he could walk away from the Stadio San Paolo in order to take a break from the game.
He then reiterated his desire to take a sabbatical just days later.
Meanwhile, Allegri is coming under increasing pressure as the Rossoneri struggle in 12th place after 10 games.
According to Sport Mediaset, the former Napoli player may be at the front of the queue should Mazzarri call it quits.
Giuseppe Sannino, who was sacked as Palermo manager three games into the new season, has also been suggested as a possible successor.
