Breaking: Allegri to replace Wenger at Arsenal

By The Citizen

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has reportedly told friends he has decided to leave the club for a move to Arsenal at the end of this season, according to sources in Italy.

The 49-year-old is into his third season as Juve boss, but the search for his replacement has apparently already begun as he has chosen to move on and take up the chance to replace Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.

Allegri had a notable falling out with star player Leonardo Bonucci after a recent win over Palermo, and is said to feel aggrieved that the club didn't defend him more during the saga.

According to Calciomercato, this has led the Italian tactician to end his association with the Serie A giants this summer, which he revealed to close friends over dinner.

This would be a big appointment for Arsenal, who have been led by Wenger for nearly 21 years in what was initially a hugely successful reign for the Frenchman in north London.
