Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri: 'I rejected offer from Real Madrid'

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri claims that he rejected the opportunity to replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has claimed that he rejected the chance to become the new boss of Real Madrid.

Last month, Zidane stepped down from his position at the Bernabeu and on Tuesday, Spain coach Julen Lopetegui was announced as the replacement for the legendary Frenchman.

However, Allegri has said that he was given the opportunity to make the switch to the Champions League winners, only to reject the approach having already committed his future to Juventus.

The 50-year-old told Sky Sport Italia: "I said no to Real Madrid. I did it on the phone to [Madrid president] Florentino Perez because I had given my word to [Juventus] president [Andrea] Agnelli.

"I thanked Florentino for the offer but said I couldn't accept it out of the respect I owed to Juventus."

Earlier this summer, Allegri was also linked with positions at Arsenal and Chelsea.
