Massimiliano Allegri 'interested in managing Paris Saint-Germain'

Massimiliano Allegri ‘wants Paris Saint-Germain job, with manager Thomas Tuchel under pressure… but the Italian is also keen on the Premier League and is learning English’

  • Massimiliano Allegri has been out of work since leaving Juventus last season
  • He has been monitoring the situation at PSG with boss Thomas Tuchel under fire
  • The Premier League also interests Allegri – who is a regular visitor to London 

Former AC Milan and Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has earmarked Paris Saint-Germain as his next possible destination as he seeks a return to management.

Allegri has been out of work for a year since leaving Juventus at the end of last season.

However, L’Equipe report that the Italian is now keen to get back into the fold after a sabbatical – with French giants PSG attracting his eye.

PSG’s sporting director Leonardo is reportedly keen on bringing in Allegri to replace under-fire manager Thomas Tuchel.

Speculation over Tuchel’s future has been rife with the German having just one year left on his deal at the Parc des Princes.

Despite his willingness to bring in Allegri, Leonardo faces a stumbling block in that the coronavirus pandemic has altered the French club’s planning, and removing Tuchel is now not a priority.

If Paris isn’t a possible destination then L’Equipe report of Allegri’s fondness for the Premier League. The 52-year-old is a regular visitor to London and would like to test himself in England one day. During this sabbatical he has been learning English too – although he insists that is for personal reasons only.

L’Equipe claim though a return to Italy appears harder for Allegri due to the top jobs all being currently occupied in his homeland. 

Maurizio Sarri is still in the Juventus role Allegri vacated last summer, while Antonio Conte (Inter Milan) and Simone Inzaghi (Lazio) are enjoying wonderful seasons at their respective clubs. A return to former club AC Milan also appears off the cards with the Italian giants committed to Ralf Rangnick for the post-Stefano Pioli era.
