Max Allegri to reject Tottenham and Italy approaches as he waits to replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid bossMay 25, 2021
MAX ALLEGRI is ready to reject Tottenham and jobs in Italy to hold out for the Real Madrid job, according to reports.
Los Blancos could be set for a summer of change after a trophy-less campaign under boss Zinedine Zidane.
Zidane still has a year left on his deal but hinted he is ready to depart this summer.
And it appears Real Madrid are already planning for his eventual departure having held talks with former Juventus boss Allegri.
The 53-year-old must be feeling confident of landing the top job at the Bernabeu because he is ready to reject all other approaches.
That includes a move to the Premier League with Tottenham as Daniel Levy looks for Jose Mourinho's long-term appointment.
Allegri is also ready to turn down a return to the Old Lady, two years after leaving Turin.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano wrote on Twitter: "Massimiliano Allegri’s priority is always Real Madrid.
"He has still not accepted any bid from Italy as of today – he wants to wait for Real.
"Allegri is the favourite only if Zidane decides to leave the club. Real are also planning for some new entry in the board."

Allegri won five league titles with Juventus and departed with two Champions League runners-up medals.
Meanwhile, SunSport exclusively revealed how Mauricio Pochettino is considering a stunning return to Spurs.
Levy is considering trying to persuade their ex-boss to leave Paris Saint-Germain.
Poch, who failed to land the Ligue 1 title for PSG and lost in the Champions League semi-finals to Manchester City, is struggling in Paris, where he starred as a player.
The former Southampton boss feels he has unfinished business at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a return would be incredibly popular with the fans.
