Massimiliano Allegri below EVENS to become PSG manager following Juve exit

The availability of Max Allegri sparks the interest of top European clubs, starting with PSG

Through winning five successive Serie A titles to maintain Juventus’ monopoly over the Italian top tier, Massimiliano Allegri has lived up to the expectations of his job. The only shortcoming came in Europe, where only managing to go as far as sealing two runners-up places in the Champions League saw the former AC Milan boss failing to win the biggest competition in football.

It wouldn’t be enough to lead to the dismissal of many managers, but based on the fact that the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo was supposed to get Juventus over the line, Max Allegri’s position was always in danger. Whether it was club’s decision or the choice of Allegri himself, an official announcement declared that he would leave Turin at the end of the season.

Considering Massimiliano Allegri’s stock in world football, it’s assumed that most of Europe’s top clubs will come calling for him in the coming weeks, and it’s already the case with Paris Saint Germain, who look likely to approach him imminently.

Could Max Allegri be the man to get the best out of Paris Saint Germain?

Down to 5/6 from as high as 14/1, Massimiliano Allegri is the clear favourite to become next PSG manager, even with Thomas Tuchel reportedly set to stay into future years.

A lot of football fans are unsure over Tuchel’s ability considering how he could only win the league in his first season after Unai Emery left the club last season despite winning everything on offer apart from the Champions League.

Moving outside of Italy would come as a surprise in this instance – Allegri previously the favourite to manage Inter Milan – but past reports linked the Juventus boss to Chelsea and Arsenal, so if there’s any truth behind these various rumours, it must have been a consideration in the past.

He would find more struggles in being in charge of a team that need work after merely needing to continue the work started by Antonio Conte at Juventus, but Paris Saint Germain wouldn’t need waves of improvement, instead strengthening their already world-class starting eleven and introducing a crucial winning mentality.

Anyone who follows Italian football will see the irony in Max Allegri coming into Paris Saint Germain to finally win the Champions League after all previous managers fell short, as it’s the one prize that was always inches too far away from the manager during his lengthy period at Juventus.

That being said, he’s a vastly more experienced manager than Thomas Tuchel and his credentials are sublime considering the past few seasons at Juventus, so the introduction of a man who possesses more understanding of managing at the highest level would certainly be a benefit.

It will be a test to see how Max Allegri fares outside of Italy after being in control of what many would consider an easy job.
