“In Italy, finished”: Massimiliano Allegri fuels speculation of Premier League move

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed that when he leaves Juventus he will also leave Italy to manage abroad.

The Italian has been linked with a move to the Premier League with Arsenal and Chelsea the two clubs showing the strongest interest.

During his five years in Turin, Allegri has won four Serie A titles and guided the Old Lady to two Champions League finals, causing his profile around Europe to skyrocket.

Fuelling speculation of a move to the Premier League, Allegri has confirmed his plans to eventually move abroad when his job at Juventus is complete.

With complete being: Winning the Champions League.

This will come as great news for the supporters of Arsenal, who are keen to see the former AC Milan head coach to replace Arsene Wenger.

Allegri told The Telegraph:

“Certainly I will go abroad. In Italy, finished.”

However, when asked about his plans of staying in club football, the 50-year-old added:

“Five or six years (left).”

Allegri’s side remain one of Europe’s best defensively, conceding just five in their last 16 games in all competitions.

On Saturday, victory in Turin against AC Milan saw Juventus move four points clear of Napoli at the top of Serie A.

With their attention back on European action, the Italian giants now face the task of becoming the first side since 2015 to knock out the competition’s reigning champions.

Real Madrid comfortably saw off Las Palmas on Saturday. However, they remain 13 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona with just eight fixtures remaining.

On Tuesday, Juve will, of course, be extra wary of Ronaldo who has been in spectacular form in the Champions League this season netting 12 times in just eight appearances.
