Real Madrid: Allegri reportedly rejects chance to replace Zidane



Cadena SER said on Monday night that the Juventus head coach has turned down an approach from Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez.

Massimiliano Allegri appears unlikely to take over as Real Madrid coach.

Allegri not keen to replace Zidane at Real Madrid

Real president Florentino Pérez had reportedly approached Allegri with a view to the Juventus boss succeeding Zinedine Zidane, who surprisingly resigned from the Bernabéu dugout late last week.

However, Spanish radio station Cadena SER said on Monday evening that the ex-AC Milan coach has rebuffed the European champions' advances.

Pérez made interest known through ex-Milan director

Gazzetta dello Sport also claims that Allegri has opted against a move to Spain, revealing on Tuesday that Pérez made the 50-year-old aware of his interest through former Milan director Adriano Galliani, who is a friend of the Real chief and retains a good relationship with the coach from their time together at San Siro.

Allegri is said to have confirmed to Galliani that he intends to remain at Juve, who he guided to a seventh straight Serie A title this season.

Has also reportedly rejected Chelsea, Arsenal and PSG

Allegri's Real rejection is believed to come on the back of unsuccessful overtures from Premier League side Chelsea, while Gazzetta has reported that the Italian has knocked back recent offers from Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain.
