Allegri to Madrid, Zidane for Juve?

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.
