Allegri says he’s not prepped for a move to Premier League
Massimilliano Allegri of Juventus, who has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League, has said there has been no negotiation with Arsenal.
Allegri has refuted all claims that he is moving to Emirates.
The Italian have been linked with a move to England for some years now but the rumors got more pronounced on Sunday when he was said to be ready for the move to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal Coach.
Wenger, could decide to resign at the end of the season, as the North London club are finding it difficult to stay in the race to qualify for the Champions League next season. Their next round of 16 fixture would determine if they get to finish in the top-four.
Allegri, speaking in a press conference after the Juve 1-1 draw at Udinese on Sunday, said:
“I repeat what I have already said before – it’s not true,” he said.
“The second thing, even if there was something in it, the first to know and learn my wish to leave would be Juventus… I’m contracted until 2018.
“I’m not the one to decide my future – Juventus will. It is they who decide because it’s the way I work and have worked previously.”
Allegri added: “When time passes, as we did last year, we will evaluate what to do.
“And if these rumours were true, Juventus would be the first to know and I haven’t talked to Juventus yet.”
The Former AC Milan coach has had a successful time at Juventus, leading the Serie A club to League titles since he joined them in 2014.
