Serie A: Massimiliano Allegri wants to stay at Juventus

Juventus have just secured their seventh consecutive Serie A title and manager Massimiliano Allegri has dismissed reports that had linked him with a move away from the Turin club this summer. Allegri has been named by various media outlets as the successor to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal following the Frenchman's resignation after 22 years in charge. "If they don't fire me, then I think I'm staying at Juventus next year too," Massimiliano Allegri said after his side recorded a goalless draw against Roma on Sunday to secure the title.

Allegri has claimed his fourth league and domestic cup double with Juventus in as many seasons with the club, so at least in theory the Bianconeri would have no reason in the world to fire him. The Italian has also been touted as a possible replacement for Antonio Conte at Chelsea, which would be quite ironic considering that Allegri also replaced Conte at Juventus. Both Chelsea and Arsenal finished outside the Premier League top four, which means they won't play Champions League football next season, so attracting a manager of Allegri's stature would be more difficult.

"It's not an issue of decisions on the future, it's about planning what the future of Juventus will be, because once we've finished celebrating, we have to sit around a table with clear heads," Allegri added. "When the next season begins, we all start from zero points and must continue proving we are competitive." Massimiliano Allegri is under contract with Juventus until the end of the 2019-2020 season. He has won five Serie A titles, one with AC Milan and four with Juventus, and has never managed a team outside Italy.

Massimiliano Allegri is 4/1 at Bet365 to become the new Arsenal manager, 6/1 to replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea and 16/1 to become the new Real Madrid boss.

    When in fact I think he's job is at danger or at least it could be.

    Yeah he's got all the domestic success with Juventus in those 4 seasons plus a CL lost final but the style is what probably worry most of the Juve fans and management.
    If Chelsea were to sack Conte both teams could of swap their current managers in somewhat of a natural manner but of course we don't know what Abramovic thinks about this matter.
