Juventus have made an offer to Pep Guardiola in excess of €20m per year however it’s been rejected by the Spaniard.

The Bianconeri have been without a coach since Max Allegri left the club some two weeks ago, fuelling speculation that the delay in appointment has been linked to their pursuit of Guardiola.

Eurosport report that Juve have made an offer to the Manchester City manager worth just over €20m a season, however the offer was turned down.

While parts of the Italian press suggest that Juve are still trying to convince Pep, the report suggests Guardiola rejected the offer immediately.

Speculation in the Italian and British press now suggests that Juve will press on with their negotiations to release Maurizio Sarri from Chelsea and announce his appointment before the close of the week.
