Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has distanced himself from rumour linking him to a move to Manchester United, declaring:  “I’m happy at Juventus.”

Bizarre rumours in the Italian press linked United with the Juve boss, but Allegri dismissed the speculation during his press conference today,

“I have a contract until 2017,” he told the gathered press.

“I’m happy at Juventus, I’m focused on objectives that are much more important than rumours about the transfer market.

“In a month there will be the January mercato and then you (the media) will be happy to move players from one place to another. We’re thinking about what we must do this year.

“There aren’t any problems with the team, I have several players available and ready to have a great game.

“It’ll be a complicated and difficult match. Against Empoli, Lazio didn’t deserve to lose, against Palermo they played well and tomorrow will be difficult.

“They want revenge for Shanghai and the Coppa Italia, we can’t afford a slip up, we are in a delicate moment and we want to gain another position within the league table.”
