It was reported that the former AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri would accept Napoli’s offer if Real Madrid made sure he no longer wanted him. Allegri is currently unemployed after breaking up with Juventus on 17 May 2019.
According to RAI Sport and Radio Kiss Kiss Italia, Allegri is ready to accept Napoli’s contract offer. However, the only thing holding back the process was Real Madrid. So, if the Spanish giants tell Allegri that Zinedine Zidane will stay or that they are looking for another coach, then Allegri is ready to accept Napoli’s offer.
Allegri is reportedly close to Madrid. Even Los Blancos are ready to pay 10 million euros or the equivalent of Rp175 billion per season. Allegri was chosen to replace Zidane if he no longer wanted to handle Madrid.
The current Napoli coach, Gennaro Gattuso, does have a chance of getting a ticket for the 2021/2022 Champions League, but his relationship with President Aurelio De Laurentiis has been very tense over the past few months and it is unlikely that the problem will be resolved anytime soon.
De Laurentiis is said to be bringing in another, more prestigious tactician for next season. Allegri is his first choice and RAI Sports transfer expert Ciro Venerato told Radio Kiss Kiss that the former Juventus coach has agreed on the financial package he will receive.
As reported by football-italia.net, Venerato claims De Laurentiis told a friend that signing Allegri will be very expensive, but it’s better to get a great coach and he will reduce a few players to sign Allegri.
However, if Allegri withdraws from Napoli, De Laurentiis will turn to Luciano Spalletti. The former AS Roma coach was fired by Inter Milan on May 30, 2019.
The Udinese vs Juventus duel was colored by Allegri’s speculation, Pirlo admits he is not panicking
Andrea Pirlo is under heavy pressure ahead of Juventus’ away match against Udinese in the 34th Giornata of Serie A 2020/2021. The Italian coach is reportedly going to be fired and replaced by Massimiliano Allegri if he fails to achieve a positive result.
Pirlo was appointed to replace Maurizio Sarri on August 8, 2020, with the mission of helping Juventus win Serie A for the tenth time in a row. However, certainly, the task will not be fulfilled.
Juventus’ dominance in Italy, which has been going on since 2011/2012, will soon be damaged by Inter Milan. Because, after winning 2-0 at home to Crotone, the Nerazzurri only need one more point to secure the Scudetto.
This worsened Pirlo’s record after previously allowing Juventus to be eliminated by Porto in the last 16 of the Champions League. Even though he had received praise when he succeeded in helping La Vecchia Signora beat Napoli 2-0 in the Supercoppa Italiana event, 21 January ago.
Now Pirlo’s only way to win the prestigious title on his debut season is to win the Coppa Italia. The reason is, Cristiano Ronaldo et al have reached the final and will serve Atalanta on May 20.
But, before that, Pirlo must first beat Udinese at the Dacia Arena – Stadio Friuli, tonight. Because, if you lose, Juventus, which is currently in the fifth position in the Serie A standings, could fail to win a Champions League ticket.
If that happens, Pirlo will most likely be fired and fail to feel the Coppa Italia final. Because it is suspected that Allegri is ready to continue his duties. The rumors got even louder after John Elkann as the CEO of Exor – the company that controls Juventus – made a sudden inspection to the training ground.
