According to FOOTBALL-ITALIA, former coach of Milan and Juventus, 52-year-old Massimiliano Allegri, who has been on hiatus for almost a year, intends to return to football next season.
There is no shortage of people who are interested in Allegri. He has even been linked with Newcastle. The club will soon have a new owner in the form of Sheikh. So, in addition to strengthening the Gunners with top-class players, they also need a high-level coach. Although two favorites have recently emerged – Mauricio Pochettino and Rafa Benitez. Consequently, other options for Allegri will also have to be discussed.
It is known that if the current season of the Premier League is renewed and Manchester United cannot get a ticket to the Champions League, most likely, Solskjaer will be fired. It is assumed that the contract will be offered to Allegri.
Allegri as a head coach of PSG?
The Italian media do not rule out that Allegri will be the head of PSG. The team’s sports director, Leonardo, will not tolerate the unsuccessful performances of Thomas Tuchel at the European Championships for a long time.
Allegri and Leonardo do not have a bad relationship with each other. The French champion team needs a specialist who will help him achieve victories in the Champions League.
Massimiliano Allegri joined the ranks of the elite coaches after becoming the head coach of Milan. Together with the team, he was able to win the Italian Serie A. After that, he led Juventus in 2014-19 and managed to win the Scudetto five times. Despite successes on the domestic front, Allegri lost twice in the Champions League final. First time he lost in 2014-15 with Barcelona, and then in 2016-17 season with Real Madrid.
It is still unknown what Allegri will decide, or whether he has already selected a favorite team. However, when he left Juventus, he admitted that he wanted to work in the Premier League and had even started studying English.
