Massimiliano Allegri would not “deny or confirm” speculation that the Juventus manager will succeed Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager at the end of the season.
Wenger’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign, and he has yet to make an official deal.
Sources have been speculating that Juventus manager Allegri and Arsenal are in talks to bring the Italian manager to Arsenal. However, Allegri refused to give flames to the rumors with his statement.
“I won’t deny or confirm anything. I am in sync with the club, now we have to focus on winning.
“At this time of the season the media always says I’m leaving, even when things are going really well.”
Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta reiterated his belief that Allegri will stay:
“Aside from the fact we have a contract with Allegri, I think there are still great targets we need to achieve together and our rapport is very good,” Marotta told Mediaset Premium.
“There is no reason for him to leave Juventus as there is great mutual admiration and affection.”
