Max Allegri is planning to take over at Real Madrid next season, with Zinedine Zidane replacing him at Juventus, claims Luciano Moggi.
This rumour has been doing the rounds for a while, but continues to grow in intensity.
Manchester United sacked Jose Mourinho, prompting reports Zidane was a candidate, but it’s suggested he has already given his word to Juve, where he played from 1996-2001.
Moggi was the director at Juventus when Zidane was playing there and he backed the story when speaking on Italian television 7 Gold this evening.
Allegri confirmed he had turned down a move to Madrid last summer, as he had unfinished business in Turin, specifically another push for the Champions League.
Julen Lopetegui was hired instead and fired after a poor start to the campaign, replaced by Santiago Solari.
