Two years later, Massimiliano Allegri should finally make his return to the sidelines, but not on the side of Real Madrid. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian technician would have refused the offer of the Spanish club and will now focus on the proposals of Inter Milan and Juventus.
For two years and his departure from Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri scrutinizes the waltz of the coaches, watches for opportunities before positioning himself on a file. At the end of May, the Italian technician is the most sought-after man on the market as the big European clubs prepare for their next season.
For several weeks, an arrival at Real Madrid had been mentioned. But this Thursday, the Gazzetta dello Sport affirms that Allegri would have refused the offer of the Spanish club, even though Zinedine Zidane is expected to announce his departure from the White House in the coming hours. According to the Italian daily, Allegri would have thanked Florentino Pérez, the president of Real, for his interest, without following up on his proposal.
Allegri between Juve and Inter
The soap opera that surrounds Allegri should finally unravel on the side of Italy. The former AC Milan coach is said to have two offers from Inter and Juventus. Interists are looking for a replacement for Antonio Conte, who announced his departure after winning Serie A. The Nerazzurri are reportedly offering Allegri a three-season contract, for an annual salary of 10 million euros.
Juventus are also preparing the sequel. Andrea Pirlo is still under contract, but he is weakened by the results of the club this season, even if the Old Lady hung the Champions League on the last day of Serie A. The departure of the sporting director, Fabio Paratici, last support of weight for Pirlo at the club, was announced on Wednesday.
Allegri previously coached Juve from 2014 to 2019
There is little doubt that Pirlo will no longer coach Juve next season. And to replace him, Andrea Agnelli, the president of the club, would therefore consider calling on a former member of the house. Allegri won five Scudetti and led Juventus twice to the Champions League final between 2014 and 2019.
A fine connoisseur of Italian football and the workings of the Old Lady, the 53-year-old coach could try to revive Juventus, which is about to experience a small revolution this summer. The Turin club would offer a salary of between 8 and 9 million euros, for a contract of three or four years. The conditions for Allegri’s future would therefore be set. Now remains to be decided for the Italian.
