Juve Considering Allegri’s Position
According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Fabiana Della Valle, Juventus are currently considering Allegri for the managerial position, but they are unlikely to make a decision to change the manager right away.
Juve lost 0-1 away to Monza in the 7th round of Serie A. They have now suffered a 5-game winless streak in Serie A and the Champions League after not winning a single match at the bottom of the table.
According to Italian journalist Fabiana, never before have all parties within Juve been so estranged as they are now, with the players frustrated and Allegri confused about the team’s situation. After the game yesterday, Allegri arrived at the team bus only after being escorted by security personnel, and his face was very ugly at that time.
In addition this journalist reporter also said that the relationship between Allegri and Di Maria has also broken down, with the latter unhappy with the club’s handling of his physical injury.
Finally, Fabiana’s report still points out that Juve’s doubts about Allegri’s position are increasing and they are considering the Italian coach’s position, but they will more than likely wait until the end of the year during the World Cup to make a decision, Juve’s management wants to determine whether they can enter the knockout rounds of the Champions League first, and for now, a change of manager is unlikely to happen.
Inter are in talks with Chelsea to re-sign Romelu Lukaku on loan at the end of the season for another year for €8m.
Di Marzio sources say that Lukaku has no possibility of returning to Chelsea next summer, the player did his best this summer to ensure a return to Inter.
Di Marzio said, “At first I didn’t think Marina would let Lukaku return to Inter, I think they would have kept him or at least not let him return to Inter on loan, but the situation the club went through contributed to the deal.
“I really don’t think Lukaku will come back to Chelsea, how could he be back in a Chelsea shirt? He has done everything he can to ensure he returns to Inter. I think a solution will be found between the two clubs. The more likely point is to continue the loan. Inter have already paid 8 million euros for him and will probably support another 10 million euros next summer as a way to renew the loan. If they decide to buy out Lukaku, then the transfer fee will go down a lot.”
