Reports suggest Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri turned down an approach from Real Madrid to replace Zinedine Zidane.
The Frenchman surprisingly stepped down last week, having just secured a third Champions League triumph in a row.
Los Merengues were immediately linked with a move for the Bianconeri boss, but today’s Gazzetta dello Sport states that Allegri politely turned them down.
Former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani, a friend of Madrid President Florentino Perez, was used as an intermediary, having had a close relationship with Allegri during his time at San Siro.
The Juve Coach made it clear he was flattered by the approach, but that he didn’t intend to go back on his commitment to stay in Turin.
Allegri has already rejected Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal to stay with Juventus, and is in no hurry to leave the club,
