Cristiano Ronaldo has urged Juventus to sign Carlo Ancelotti as the Max Allegri replacement, report several sources, but he won’t leave Napoli.
It was announced on Friday that Allegri will be leaving this summer, despite the fact his contract is not due to expire until June 2020.
According to Libero, La Gazzetta dello Sport and TV Luna, Cristiano Ronaldo asked Juventus directors to approach Ancelotti.
CR7 has never disguised his fondness for Ancelotti after they worked together at Real Madrid and has said on record he’d love to be trained by him again one day.
It’d be a return to Turin for the 59-year-old tactician, who sat on the Juve bench from February 1999 to the summer of 2001.
However, he only joined Napoli this season and hasn’t the slightest intention of leaving, especially as he has a contract to June 2021.
