Max Allegri: Possible Arsene Wenger replacement

Manchester United and Spurs have emerged as options for departing Juventus coach Max Allegri, according to reports from Italy.

Allegri will leave his position as Juventus head coach at the end of the season, the Serie A club announced on Friday.

The 51-year-old has been in charge of the Turin club since joining from fellow Serie A heavyweights AC Milan in 2014 and he has won the league title in each of his five seasons in charge.

A club statement read: “Massimiliano Allegri will not be on the Juventus bench next season 2019/2020.

“The coach and the president, Andrea Agnelli, will meet together with the media at the press conference, which will be held tomorrow, Saturday, May 18, at 14 o’clock at the conference room At the Allianz Stadium.”

A report from Football Italia claims that clubs are ‘lining up’ for the chance to appoint Allegri, with five teams in particular mentioned.

Paris Saint-Germain are listed as potential suitors should they choose to get rid of Thomas Tuchel, while Bayern Munich could also make their move for the former Milan boss with Niko Kovac reportedly in hot water.

Surprisingly, Turkish giants Galatasaray are named as one of the clubs interested, although it is unlikely that he would take his talents to Istanbul.

Most interestingly though, they state that Manchester United are ‘starting to regret their decision to give the job permanently to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’ and as a result the job could open up for Allegri.

Tottenham meanwhile are ready to spring into action should Mauricio Pochettino depart – with Juventus linked – so a coach swap of sorts could take place.
