Serie A By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 08/03/2017

Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, has reportedly laid out his contract demand to the board of the club in order to remain with the Serie A champion for next season.

The former Milan manager has been subject to much speculation of a move to the Emirates in the summer, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger's job in doubt. Allegri has also be linked with the soon-to-be vacant position at Camp Nou, but the Bianconeri are keen to hold down their valuable asset.

According to Il Tempo, Allegri has requested a new four-year deal worth €5m per season and full authority when it comes to first-team matters. This would provide an extension on his current contract, which is due to expire in summer 2018. The newspaper reports that the coach has set a deadline of the end of March for the club to respond to his contract proposal.
