Allegri set for Juve job

Massimiliano Allegri is on the verge of being named as the new coach of Juventus, according to reports in Italy.

Gazzetta dello Sport and Turin-based sports newspaper Tuttosport report on Wednesday that the former AC Milan tactician has agreed a two-year deal with the Serie A champions to replace Antonio Conte.

Conte, who was under contract with Juve for a further season, surprisingly stepped down on Tuesday just one day into the Bianconeri's pre-season preparations.

Pogba: I want to stay at Juventus

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has given a strong indication that he will remain with the Italian champions next season.

I hear reports placing Pogba here and Pogba there. I haven't spoken to Juve regarding what I hear and there's nothing.

Recently the press spoke about me getting a telephone call from (Real Madrid assistant coach) Zidane to join Real.

I have not received a recent call nor have we exchanged numbers.

My aim? To win another scudetto, why not?

He is an asset to the club. He has proved to be one of the best and it is our duty to keep him close to us.

We acknowledge what Conte has achieved.

He is a coach that is prepared, he has made a huge impact in making sure the club achieved their objectives.
