Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has revealed that his primary objective is to remain with Italian giants amid speculations of replacing Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.
Allegri guided the Old Lady to a double last season and narrowly missed out of winning the UEFA Champions League as they were humbled in the final 3-1 by FC Barcelona inspired by the trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar Junior.
Van Gaal will be out of contract in the summer of 2016/17 season with the Red Devils and it has been rumoured that the club’s hierarchy are looking to replace the Dutchman with the Italian but the name of Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has also been mentioned in recent weeks.
“I’m very happy to coach Juventus and remain fully focused on achieving the very important objectives we have here,” The Telegraph quotes the 48-year-old as saying.
Allegri also won a Scudetto with AC Milan before he moved to Juventus and his current deal runs out in the summer of 2017.
