Massimiliano Allegri has delivered a major blow to Arsenal by claiming that he expects to stay at Juventus for another season.

The 50-year-old guided Juve to their seventh consecutive Serie A title on Sunday evening following a goalless draw against Roma.

Allegri is one of the leading candidates on Arsenals shortlist of managers to replace Arsene Wenger this summer.

The Juventus boss has been learning English and is open to the prospect of managing a Premier League club.

But Arsenals hopes of landing the Italian this summer have been dented after Allegri was asked about his future after Juves title win in Rome.

If they [Juves directors] do not send me away, I think I will stay at Juve next year, Allegri said in his post-match press conference.

Allegri also indicated that the club are already planning their transfers ahead of the summer window.

“Motivation is always there at Juventus, he said.

Next year, there will be some players leaving, others arriving, and the objective will be to be in the running for every objective in March again.

You have to work on yourself and find the motivation within yourself too, setting personal targets as well as those for the group.

Its a wonderful feeling, as its never easy to win.
