Juventus director, Beppe Marotta, has told Mediaset Premium, that the club are ‘very happy’ with Max Allegri and they want him to continue at the club amid suggestions that he will move to Arsenal if Arsene Wenger decides to leave.

The rumours linking Allegri and Arsenal have been strong and persistent for some time now and what’s interesting is that Allegri could have shut them all down firmly any time he wanted. He hasn’t. Although he did say last month that he hoped his future at the club would keep him there for another 300-400 games which has been quite under-reported. I guess it doesn’t fit with the narrative.

Speaking before Juve’s win in the Champions league over Porto on Tuesday night, Marotta said, “We are very happy with Allegri.

“It seems wise for a club to continue working with a coach who has shown that he can lead the dressing room, as well as being a top tactician and a great professional.”

Paulo Dybala, another heavily linked with Arsenal, especially before he moved to Turin, scored the only goal of the second leg from the penalty spot as Juve beat Porto 3-0 on aggregate to move through to the Champions League quarter final.
