Juventus boss Allegri speaks out on Chelsea rumours

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri says there is "nothing" in reports linking him with Chelsea.

The 48-year-old Italian has been touted as a possible successor to Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge, with the Dutchman in interim charge of the Blues until the end of the season.

However, Allegri, who has won the Serie A title with both AC Milan and Juventus, has dismissed speculation he may be on his way to the reigning Premier League champions.

Speaking at a youth tournament on Tuesday, he told Sky Italia: "There's nothing to it. I cannot either confirm or deny something that doesn't exist.

"I want this matter over and done with now. What's important for me right now is to get to the end of the season with Juventus and try and win some silverware."

Juventus have won 17 of their last 18 matches in all competitions and are two points behind Serie A leaders Napoli, who they play on Saturday.

They are also through to the last 16 of the Champions League, where they face Bayern Munich, and in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia, with Inter Milan their opponents.

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has signed a new five-year contract with the Primera Division club.

Oblak, 23, has committed to the end of the 2020-21 season after impressing in his first two seasons in Spain, having joined from Benfica in 2014.

Atletico Madrid announced on their official website: "Jan Oblak and our club have reached an agreement for the extension of the Slovenian goalkeeper's contract until 2021."

Under his previous deal, Oblak was tied to Atletico until 2020, with his new terms securing his services for a further season.

De Gea's Real Madrid contract leaks online

David de Gea was set to earn £9.2million a year on a deal to 2021 at Real Madrid had he completed a move from Manchester United last summer, according to the Football Leaks website.

United and Madrid in August agreed a £29million transfer that would have seen the goalkeeper swap Old Trafford for the Bernabeu, but the proposed switch fell through after the requisite paperwork was not submitted before the Spanish deadline.

On Monday, Football Leaks published a document it claims is the contract De Gea was due to sign at Madrid.

It shows the Spain international would have received a figure of 11,818,182 euros (£9.2million) for each season from 2015-16 to 2020-21.

There is also mention of a break clause of 500million euros (£388million), which De Gea would have been obliged to pay if he walked out on his contract.

Only a few days after the move failed to materialise, United announced De Gea - who joined them from Atletico Madrid on a five-year deal in 2011 - had signed a new four-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.

That deal was reportedly worth £200,000 per week. The figures from the Football Leaks document equate to around £176,000 per week.

Payet in talks over new deal amid Arsenal interest

West Ham have entered contact negotiations with France international Dimitri Payet amid speculation the player was demanding a huge pay increase.

Payet, who signed from Marseille for an eight-figure sum, has scored six league goals in 18 appearances and has also laid on four assists to help West Ham to sixth place in the table.

Speculation over the past few days had claimed Payet had made demands for a bumper new deal - something the club refuted before revealing in the same statement that they were now in discussions about a fresh contract for the player.

"Following reports in today's media, West Ham United would like to clarify that at no time have Dimitri Payet or his agent made any demands to the club over a new contract," the statement released by the club read.

"However, the club can confirm that due to Dimitri's outstanding impact since his arrival at the Boleyn Ground, they have initiated amicable and productive talks about an improvement and extension to his contract. Those talks are progressing well and it is hoped they can be concluded shortly.

"Dimitri would like to make clear that he is very proud to play for West Ham United and he appreciates the support he has received from the board, manager and fans since he joined the club in the summer."

Payet's consistently impressive displays had already seen him linked with a host of other clubs, with Arsenal the latest side reportedly preparing a bid.
