Next Arsenal manager: Massimiliano Allegri future discussed by top Juventus star

Florence Fletcher

"At the end of the season, we'll sit down and talk as we always do and plan for the future, because we have to do that every year and this has to be done with great clarity".

The former AC Milan, Cagliari, Sassuolo, Grosseto and Aglianese coach has been canvassing options outside the Italian game for some time now, using a recent interview to advertise an intent to "certainly...go abroad" post-Juventus.

Arsenal have slashed their managerial shortlist to five names with Massimilano Allegri, Mikel Arteta and Patrick Vieira still in the race to replace Arsene Wenger.

Chelsea, who are expected to replace Antonio Conte after the FA Cup final later this month, are also interested in Allegri and could yet rival Arsenal, who have not qualified for next season's Champions League. It's a new era of football, so Arsenal need somebody like Allegri to come in and give the club what they need to succeed.

"I am at one of the most decorated teams in the world, we are coming from an important period of victories, winning again is always hard and you need to always build to try and win on all fronts".

Arsenal is also reportedly interested in Allegri with Arsene Wenger leaving after nearly 22 years in charge, while Paris Saint-Germain is in the hunt for a new coach as well. However, if he is unwilling to leave Juventus then the Gunners will have to look elsewhere.

"We had the pleasure of raising the Coppa Italia in the last three season and we would like to repeat this wonderful achievement on Wednesday", he said. "He is in love with Arsenal so now, for him and the club, it is important to finish well".

"We will have a very motivated Milan in front of us because this is a fundamental objective for them, but we want to win". He has also guided the club to two Champions League finals.
