Juventus Coach Max Allegri is looking ever more likely to stay at the club and pen an extension to his current deal.

There’s been a mountain of speculation over Allegri’s future in recent months, especially given the reports from England linking him with a move to Arsenal as a long-term successor to Arsene Wenger. Despite the rumours, both Allegri and the club have insisted that he is happy to remain at the club for the foreseeable future.

The latest headlines in Italy suggest Juve may take things a step further in an effort to keep Allegri at the club beyond 2018, when his current deal expires. Gazzetta Dello Sport reported last week that Juve are working to renew Allegri’s contract as the management are not impressed with the possible alternatives that have been linked with Juventus.


This was promptly followed by a report from the reliable Romeo Agresti who suggested that Juve are working on new deals for the entire management team, including Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, in an effort to ward off interest from possible suitors.

Speaking to RadioVS last week, Corriere dello Sport journalist Ant Barilla expressed his opinion that Allegri is ever more likely to remain at Juventus and sign a new multi-year contract, pledging his future to the club.
