Massimiliano Allegri has suggested that he intends to continue his managerial career at Juventus despite interest from Chelsea and Arsenal.

Since Arsene Wenger revealed his plans to leave the North London stadium, Allegri has been named as one of the top candidates to take over 68-year-old Frenchman’s job.

However, after winning another Serie A title with Juve last weekend Allegri says that his focused to improve Juventus for the next campaign and plans to remain at Allianz Stadium for another year.

The 50-year-old told Italian reporters: “If they don’t fire me, then I think I’m staying at Juventus next year too.

“It’s not an issue of decisions on the future, it’s about planning what the future of Juventus will be, because once we’ve finished celebrating, we have to sit around a table with clear heads.

“When the next season begins, we all start from zero points and must continue proving we are competitive.”

Allegri has also been linked with the managerial position at Chelsea, however, now it seems that both London clubs will have to look elsewhere in order to lure a world-class manager.
