Cagliari President Tommaso Giulini reveals he ‘asked Max Allegri’ to take the Sardinian job in January. ‘He told me his next adventure will be abroad.’
It would’ve been a return for the former Juventus and Milan coach, who was on the Cagliari bench from 2008-10 under President Massimo Cellino.
“I made a bit of a mad phone call towards the end of January, offering Allegri the job, knowing full well it was going to be impossible,” Giulini said on Sky Sport Italia.
“Massimiliano told me his next adventure will be abroad, even if he was fascinated by the proposal of leading Cagliari during our centenary year. I knew even before making the phone call that it was going to be improbable.”
Allegri has been repeatedly linked with several big roles around Europe, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
While at Juventus, he won five consecutive Serie A titles and reached the Champions League Final twice.
