The loss to Inter after 19 positive results in a row won’t affect the future of Massimiliano Allegri. Even though he has won over some skeptics this season, it’s not certain it’ll still be with Juventus given his short-term contract, TuttoSport informs.
Both parties are pondering. It’s usually not a good omen to begin a campaign with a coach in the final year of his deal. It’s unlikely to happen. Therefore, the call will have to come next summer shortly after the final Serie A game.
Juventus and Allegri are happy with the ongoing relationship, but the team wouldn’t mind a less expensive boss. He makes €7M per year. It remains to be determined whether he’d be willing to shave his salary while agreeing to a multi-year contract.
The manager and Cristiano Giuntoli will sit down in June to take stock. If he left, the tactician wouldn’t have issues finding a new team. He’s drawing interest primarily from Saudi Arabia. It already happened last summer. He could be more open to it than in the past.
Our Take on Juventus and Allegri
Part of their brass would have gladly pulled the plug before this campaign when it would have been more justifiable result-wise. The Bianconeri are in a nice spot. Staying the course would be a lot more understandable now. But also going with an up-and-comer with a more modern style would work.
