Massimiliano Allegri is in talks with Arsenal to succeed Arsene Wenger, as per The Sun.
Wenger – who only has a few months left on his current contract – hasn’t begun contract talks yet and would likely walk away should Arsenal fail to win a major trophy this season. As things stand, the chances of the Gunners winning either of those trophies look bleak.
The Arsenal board is, therefore, preparing for the post-Wenger era and Allegri is one of the leading candidates to take over. The Italian, despite winning consecutive league titles, has run out of gas to be able to lead the Italian Champions as well as he has previously and it seems the pressure is beginning to tell, as the Italian has clashed with some of his players. The Italian has until March to decide if he wants to stay at the club, although it is thought that he is desperate to leave Turin.
Moreover, Allegri’s treatment of Patrice Evra hasn’t gone down very well with some of the senior players inside the dressing room, Messrs Gianluigi Buffon, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonnuci being among those not amused.
