Allegri is leaving Juventus, but will Arsenal jump?

News sources in Italy are claiming that Massimiliano Allegri has agreed to leave Juventus this summer, a year before his contract was to expire.

This news will excite Arsenal fans who have been calling for change, with many believing that now is the right time to part ways with Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman has been at the club for over 20 years and led us through some amazing times, but having endured tough financial times while the new stadium was being built, they have failed to sustain a serious title challenge for a while now.

Gunners fans have become frustrated with the lack of progress in recent years, and now with Wenger’s contract up this summer, appear keen for him to leave.

It had been thought that Arsene would stay as long as he had wished, but it may be more to the point that he is unwilling to leave until a reasonable replacement is found, and he may well have given his seal of approval to Allegri.

Sir Alex Ferguson played a huge part in choosing his successor for Manchester United previously, and you would expect the Arsenal boss to also merit the same decision.

Allegri has led his current Juve side to win the Serie A and Coppa Italia double in each of his two seasons with the club, as well as reaching the Champions League final in his opening term.

The Italian could well be set to bring his ‘winning mentality’ to the Premier league, with Wenger having been accused of lacking just that in recent years.

Should Arsene leave this summer, the most interesting thing will be whether the new manager will be allowed to spend in order to rival the other big clubs in England, with Wenger having been blamed for a lack of spending in parts.

Would Allegri be a great replacement for Wenger? Has Arsene just been waiting for the right man to replace him?

    In Allegri we Trust

  2. Ian Ures Boots says:

    Hmmm…. A manager who can inspire his players to win a crucial match, who can turn them from jellyfish to men, who can instil the desire to win despite the odds. Roll on the day it cant come soon enough.

  3. ThirdManJW says:

    I desperately want Simeone, but to be honest, I’d take anyone right now. Two FA Cups in 12 years, and still, people like Neville believe Arsenal will struggle after Wenger leaves. Hasn’t the last decade been a struggle?

    1. Arsenal007 says:

      Neville knows well that Arsenal will be a force to reckon with…If we get in a title winning manager. He dreads it, and would rather we remained in mediocrity.

    Why not?

    1. stubill says:

      Why not? How about;

      Pochettino; Will be Barca or Real bound if he leaves Tottenham

      Ranieri; That’s just a joke isn’t it!

      Loew ; No success at league level, scratches his balls and smells his fingers afterwards.

    Mamma Mia ? Yeah right, Wenger is waiting for a decent manager to replace him, so that he can step down lol? Are Youuu serious?
    Wenger will be hanging on to that Arsenal paycheque as if his life depended on it.
    There’s more chance of Arsenal winning the treble this season than Wenger leaving this summer. ?
    We have another two Ground Hog years to put up with,I’m afraid. ?

    I would rather have Simeone but I am afraid he will chose Inter Milan. But don’t put your hopes too high though. Arsenal will go on a winning streak, maybe will get some luck against Bayern and then everything will be forgotten. Then, as a gesture of greatness of course, Wenger will say, ok, ok, I’ll sign da thing, just because you beg me to do it. Fsck, I hate this so much now but I can’t do anything about it. I would pay the exorbitant ticket price to come and show my banner at the Emirates but I am so feckin far away.

  7. RSH says:

    Will Arsenal jump, or just sit on their hands and hope things go the way they want them to in transfer window, and if it doesn’t make up boring excuses for fans? I wonder?

  8. Man Mulo says:

    Loew for me guys, even though he doesn’t have League Experience i like how his teams can play possession football but can also be fast on the break kinda like Arsenal. I hope they take a chance on him like they did on Wenger.

    I wouldn’t complain if Allegri came in either, it would be exciting to see what they do with the team and how they play.
