Almost all major clubs in Europe have been looking for a new manager in recent months, with Real Madrid one of those looking for a new manager, and Allegri has confirmed that he rejected Los Blancos in favor of a return to Turin.

“I turned down Real Madrid’s proposal to become the new manager, yes,” he said according to the club’s official social media account. “I want to say thank you for the opportunity but I love Juventus.

“There are many great potentials that we will work with every day. I chose Juventus, and for me it is a big responsibility. I am very grateful to the club that has given me the opportunity to return to coaching and to win.”

Given Juve’s ongoing financial difficulties, a number of their key players’ futures are currently up in the air, although Allegri took the opportunity to assure the club’s fans that he does not intend to lose his star players.

Rumors have been circulating that Juve could download Ronaldo in an attempt to ease the burden on their payroll costs, but Allegri dismissed such a call, claiming that the Portuguese superstar will be crucial to their 2021/22 campaign.

“Cristiano is a great champion and an intelligent guy,” he said. “Yesterday I spoke to him – as I did with everyone else – I told him this is an important year and he has a greater responsibility, because the team is young.”

Chiellini is currently a free agent after his contract with the old lady expired while he was away in international service with Italy, and Allegri confirmed that the situation is in hand and that an agreement will be finalized when the winner of Euro 2020 returns to the club service. .

“I talked to him [Chiellini] a few days ago, “he said.” I did not let him interrupt his vacation to come and sign a contract, after 20 years together, it’s no problem. “

“There are many young people here, they will be an added value and the future of the club. Then there are the more experienced ones, like Chiellini, Bonucci and Ronaldo, who will be examples for the young people.”

Dybala is another whose future has been questioned late after the Argentine international failed to agree on new terms at the club, but who, with Ronaldo and Chiellini, seemed Allegri to suggest he stay at the club.

“Paulo came when he was little,” he added. “Now he is a man who realizes that this is an important year for him. He has extraordinary plays, I expect a lot from him.”
