Allegri: Barcelona or bust?

Max Allegri might end up taking a year out of the game, as most of the top jobs are already taken, unless Barcelona come calling.

According to, only the Catalan club remain as a possible destination for the 51-year-old tactician, as they could potentially part ways with Coach Ernesto Valverde after Saturday night’s Copa del Rey Final loss to Valencia.

Paris Saint-Germain has confirmed Thomas Tuchel will lead them again next season, while Bayern Munich are keeping Niko Kovac and Antonio Conte is tipped to take over at Inter, meaning the three jobs that Allegri would have been most interested in are taken.

“My plans are to get back to work when the right opportunity comes up, otherwise I will stay away from the game for a year. I want to choose a club where I can have fun and win something,” the Juventus boss told DAZN on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Barcelona sporting director Ariedo Braida who worked with the technician before at Milan and could possibly facilitate an agreement for him to take over at the Camp Nou.
