Premier League giants Arsenal may have to absolutely forget all about naming Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri as Frenchman Arsene Wenger’s successor.
The gunners began their hunt for a new head coach a month ago when Arsene Wenger made public he will end his stint at the Emirates Stadium this summer transfer window.
And a number of coaches have been tipped as possible options as Arsenal look for the tactician to take them back to the top of the standings among Europe’s elites.
Massimiliano Allegri, who’s on course to lift his fourth successive Italian Serie A title with champions Juventus, has become one of the favourites to succeed Arsene Wenger.
However, the 50-year-old tactician dropped a massive hint that he’s keen to remain in Turin after watching his team retain the Coppa Italia last Wednesday night.
Max Allegri said after the 4-0 victory over Italian Serie A side AC Milan that they must win the Serie A title and then fight hard for the next league title.
He said he has a contract with Juventus and as every season that will meet at the end of the campaign to plan the future.
The Italian’s remark came only a day after ex-Juventus player Alessandro Orlando had suggested he’d jump at the opportunity to manage North London giants Arsenal.
The Gunners could turn to Max Allegri’s compatriot and former Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti if he decides to remain with Serie A champions Juventus.
Spanish tactician Luis Enrique is another managerial option, but the former FC Barcelona manager is demanding huge money to take his next appointment in club football management.
