We have a new twist in the story linking Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri to the Chelsea job.
Yesterday, quotes emerged from Allegri’s former coach claiming that he has already held discussions with Blues owner Roman Abramovich and is set to join the club in the summer.
The reports claimed that he has agreed to a four-year deal with the Blues.
However, today, the man himself has shot down the rumours linking him with a move to the West London club.
“There’s nothing to it,” Allegri told Sky Sports News. “I cannot either confirm or deny something that doesn’t exist.
“I want this matter over and done with now. What’s important for me right now is to get to the end of the season with Juventus and try and win some silverware.”
Allegri joined the Turin club in 2014 and led the club to Serie A and Coppa Italia double in his debut season with the club. He also led them to the finals of the Champions League where they lost against Barcelona.
Juventus are currently involved with Napoli in a tightly-contested league campaign. They currently sit second in the league table, two points behind the table-toppers Napoli.
