Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal remains under intense speculation and there’s a lot of talk regarding who could replace the French manager in north London, with a host of names being linked with the role.

One of those is that of Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, who was heavily linked with the Gunners last season before 68-year-old Wenger signed a two-year extension- and it seems Arsenal may have missed their chance.

The Italian boss addressed the speculation over a potential move to north London after last night’s Champions League triumph over Tottenham Hotspur, where Juventus battled back from 1-0 down to win 2-1 on the night and advance 4-3 on aggregate.

Speaking to ViaSport after the match, Allegri stated his intention to remain at Juventus as he responded to a question asking whether he’ll move to Arsenal by saying:

‘No, because I have a contract until 2020.’

50-year-old Allegri has earned a stellar reputation in Turin, finishing runners-up in the Champions League last season, and will hope to go all the way this term.
