Massimiliano Allegri has made his first decisions for transfers to Juventus, relating to Paulo Dybala, Giorgio Chiellini and Hakan Calhanoglu, who is expected to leave Milan.
The Italian coach has returned to the club two years after being sacked. He won 11 trophies in five seasons before being fired in 2019.
According to some reports in Italy, Allegri will have a ‘managerial role’ similar to some Premier League coaches.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Allegri summoned Paulo Dybala to persuade him to sign a contract extension with the Bianconeri.
It seems to be a difficult task as Dybala’s deal at the Allianz Stadium expires in 2022, and the Argentine turned down an offer of €10 million a year from the Old Lady last summer.
Allegri is also open to extending Giorgio Chiellini’s expiring contract. The Italy and Juventus captain is expected to extend his stay at the club until 2022 before retiring.
The 36-year-old played 25 games in all competitions in the 2020-21 season and is part of the Italian team for Euro 2020.
Calciomercato.com reports that Allegri has also given the green light to the signing of Hakan Calhanoglu from Milan as a free agent.
The Turkish playmaker’s contract expires at the end of the season and he does not seem to want to sign a new contract with the Rossoneri.
