As yet another lacklustre Arsenal season draws slowly to a close, there seems to be no end to the speculation that surrounds the future of some of the star players and the manager himself, Arsene Wenger. The future of the Frenchman in particular is getting a lot of interest from the media and the latest report from the Sun claims that the North London club are already in talks with the Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri to take over from the under-fire Frenchman.
According to the report, the Arsenal camp have been in talks with Allegri over the course of the past week and are looking to reach an agreement as quickly as possible, considering that Wenger has been very coy on his future and the Italian is the only high-profile manager who seems to be available in the summer. Allegri has been one of the favourites to replace Wenger for quite some time, and if you think it is a done deal then you use the bookies own money to make the bet with this great bet365 bonus offer as he is still a good price at the moment. Needless to mention, Allegri’s stock grew massively after his Juventus side thrashed Barcelona 3-0 in the Champions League this week.
Another interesting point to note is that Allegri has been looking to move to the Premier League for quite some time now, and has even been taking English classes over the past year or so. Having won the League and Cup double in each of his first two seasons in Serie A and looking good for more silverware this season, the master tactician looks like he’s looking for a new challenge and the only top job in England available right now seems to be at Arsenal. So with that being said, the report from the Sun does seem to have a fair bit of credibility to it.
However, Max Allegri is not likely to provide his tactical expertise at a low wage rate and the miserly Arsenal board will have to pay up if his services are to be procured. But then again, Wenger is the second highest-paid manager in England on £171,000-a-week and wages in that range should be enough to convince the Italian. Personally, Allegri would be my first pick for the job but it remains to be seen whether the club can seal the deal and bring him to the Emirates.
