Max Allegri: Possible Arsene Wenger replacement

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri will be leaving the Serie A giants at the end of the season, according to an exclusive report by Calciomercato.

Our Italian source, via reporter Nicola Balice, believes Allegri held a meeting with Juventus officials in January and confirmed his desire to leave the club after a discussion about future plans.

The duo came to a mutual agreement, which will no doubt put Arsenal on red alert as they consider potential replacements for the under-pressure Arsene Wenger.

The calls for Wenger to leave the Gunners at the end of the season have only got louder since the 3-1 defeat to Chelsea and Allegri has been strongly linked with replacing the Frenchman who has been in charge at the club for the last 20 years.

But, when asked once again about the ongoing rumours about his future, Allegri was pretty evasive and dismissive in his response.

“I won’t deny or confirm anything,” Allegri told Mediaset Premium. “I am in sync with the club, now we have to focus on winning.

“At this time of the season the media always says I’m leaving, even when things are going really well.”
