manager Massimiliano Allegri is demanding a contract extension to remain in Turin beyond the end of his current deal that expires in 2018, according to Il Tempo.

Allegri is believed to be a primary candidate to replace at Arsenal but it seems that the Italian seems keener on remaining at this current club. Il Tempo do however say that Allegri has a number of demands that he wants met.

Firstly he wants a four-year contract extension worth more than the €5million a season he is on currently. Secondly, he wants full control on all managerial matters so there is no repeat of the interference from board members like there was in his dispute with centre back Leonardo Bonucci.

Finally, and probably the most important fact for Arsenal fans, he has given Juve until the end of March to make their minds up. If he doesn’t hear by then, it is likely he will look for work elsewhere with the Gunners perhaps waiting in the wings.
