Max Allegri will meet with Juventus management today to discuss the short and long term plans for the club, starting with the signing of Emre Can.

The Tuscan tactician had been linked with a move to Arsenal to take over from the Arsene Wenger, however Allegri has repeatedly distanced himself from the vacant managers role, insisting that his intention is to continue with Juventus.

Goal Italia correspondent Romeo Agresti reports Allegri will meet with Beppe Marotta today to talk about the clubs plans for the future, namely evolution rather than revolution.

The goal for Allegri is to make Juventus competitive for the Champions League next season and Max reportedly wants guarantees that the team will be ready and prepared.

Juve’s first summer transfer will go some way to meet this objective as the club are expected to announce the signing of Liverpool midfield Emre Can on a free transfer after the Champions League final this weekend.

Marotta has reiterated the clubs desire to continue with Allegri:  “The conditions are directed to an extension of the relationship. We will listen to his wishes, but in my opinion we will continue quietly.”

Allegri, for his part, seems more than willing: “It’s a question of meeting and talking, of being very lucid in evaluating some things. We must try to make as few mistakes as possible in the choices, we must have the same objectives next season. We need people who want to work and who are equipped with the right incentives. And above all, we must evaluate where the team can be improved.”
