Juventus’ Max Allegri set to reject Saudi Arabia approach

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has reportedly dismissed any offers linking him to a managerial role in Saudi Arabia.

According to a report by Giovanni Albanese of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Massimiliano Allegri is more interested in spending his vacation quietly in Sardinia rather than getting into talks with the emissaries from Saudi Arabia now.

It was reported earlier this week that a Saudi Arabian club, possibly Al Hilal sent its representatives to negotiate a managerial role with the Italian manager and presented him with an opulent offer. However, Allegri wants to talk with the Juventus management in the next few days about his future as he has shown disinterest in the proposal from the Middle East.

Currently, on vacation, Max Allegri is said to be remotely managing the Bianconeri now and is following the renewal deals of Arkadiusz Milik and Adrien Rabiot. The club will inform him about their decision regarding both players in the coming days.

The hopes of Saudi Arabia to add another European big name to their country’s footballing legacy seems to be fading after the recent acquisitions of Karim Benzema and N’golo Kante.

All factors indicate that Massimiliano Allegri will stay as the manager of Juventus for the coming season.
