Massimiliano Allegri’s agent has ended hopes of the 52-year-old making a return to Juventus, by suggesting that the Manchester United target wants to work outside of Italy.
Allegri has been out of management since stepping down as Juventus boss following their title-winning 2018-19 season.
His successor, Maurizio Sarri, has come under pressure following mixed results in recent weeks and talk had surfaced that the club could turn to Allegri to give them the edge in this season’s title race.

But speaking on Radio Gr Parlamento’s show ‘La Politica nel Pallone’, Allegri’s agent reiterated that the plan is the ‘evaluate the offers’ come the summer.
‘Allegri’s return to Juventus is only speculation, there have been no contacts,’ Giovanni Branchini, Allegri’s agent, said.
‘I think Max wants to go abroad, it’s a wish, but at the moment there are no agreements with English, Spanish or French clubs.
‘We are waiting for the highlight to evaluate the offers: there are teams that will decide to change managers or to continue with the current ones’.
Allegri has previously revealed that he has been learning English and that he is ‘fascinated’ at the prospect of challenging himself outside of Italy.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli is reported to have been keen to keep Allegri for this season and that led to suggestions of a mid-season switch for a sensational return.
He remains under contract with the club until the end of the campaign and he has long insisted that he would wait to assess his options come the summer, with the chance to take over a club with time to build in the off-season.
Manchester United has long been viewed as the most interested club in the Italian manager, with the belief that he has the best profile to finally replace Sir Alex Ferguson.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is battling to return the club to the Champions League spots and a failure to do so this season could see the club turn to the experienced Allegri to bring success back to Old Trafford.
