Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has been heavily linked with taking on the Arsenal or Chelsea managerial job for several months now.
The highly rated coach is renowned as a master tactician having guided the Bianconeri to four successive Serie A titles and two Champions League finals since taking over in Turin in 2014.
Allegri has been talking about leaving Italy for a new challenge for some time now, although his latest comments seem to suggest he will be staying as Juve coach until his contract expires at the end of next season.
“Will I stay at Juve? Yes. I have a contract to honour.
“If they don’t sack me, I’ll stay at Juventus next year too.”
“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,” added Allegri.
“When the next season begins, we all start from zero points and must continue proving we are competitive.”
Arsenal are of course on the look out for a new manager after Arsene Wenger recently stepped down after 22 years as the clubs boss, whereas Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is widely expected to be shown the Stamford Bridge exit door after next weekends FA Cup final.
