Top source at #thfc has told me it’s “100% certain” that Allegri will not be their next boss & it’s his agent creating the story

Corriere dello Sport were a bit too sure of themselves this morning on their Allegri story, going so far as to claim that the ex-Milan boss has already signed an agreemeent with Spurs to take over next season.
Through the afternoon, the information has been exposed as pretty bogus, a fabrication by his agent for the most part, with several journalists having contacted Spurs for verification.
Simon Austin says the top source (Levy) has personaly told him it’s all an agent invention, while top Italian sources, such as Tancredi Palermi, know nothing of any Allegri-Spurs link.
The Italian has spent the last few months in London learning English, and is on the job hunt, but that seems to be about the size of it.
