Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has ruled himself out of the running for the Chelsea job by confirming he's 100% not interested.
Allegri has been a constant name linked with the available job at Stamford Bridge, but Juve fans can rest easy as he's confirmed he has no plans on leaving Turin just yet.
Chelsea have been in the market for a new manager since December, following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho due to their poor start to the 2015/2016 campaign.

Chelsea's Managerial Hunt
Despite winning the Premier League just a few months prior, Mourinho guided Chelsea to a woeful start and was eventually sacked leaving them 16th in the table and fighting relegation.
After Mourinho was axed, Guus Hiddink returned to the club on an interim basis until the end of the season.
Hiddink is currently enjoying a second stint in west London, but he's already confirmed he won't be interested in taking the job on permanently, despite enjoying an unbeaten run in the league.
The Dutchman has taken Chelsea up to 10th in the table, but he won't be staying, and that sparked reports that Allegri could be eyed to take over at the Bridge.
However, Allegri has discussed the Chelsea job in a recent interview and he's confirmed that he is not interested in the job.
It's now expected that Roman Abramovich will appoint the former-Juventus boss Antonio Conte, who is currently in charge of Italy.
Allegri Rules Out Juve
Talking about his future and commitment to Juventus, Allegri said: "Next year I’ll still be coach of Juventus, because I still have another year on my contract.
“It’s 100 per cent [certain], there’s never been anything [with other clubs].”
Despite a shaky start to the campain, Allegri has got Juve back on track and The Old Lady are now sitting top of the Serie A table after 29 games.
