Allegri discusses future and reveals why he is learning English amid Milan, Man Utd links

By Oliver Fisher -

Massimiliano Allegri has offered a brief insight into his plans for the future amid links with the AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United jobs.

Despite only being in February, there are a number of rumours currently doing the rounds regarding who could take over from Stefano Pioli as the next head coach of the Rossoneri.

Speculation is rife that Ralf Rangnick could leave his role as Head of Football Operations for Red Bull in order to start a new chapter in Italy, but La Gazzetta dello Sport are claiming that Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban want Allegri to return.

In a separate report, the same newspaper claims that Maldini and Boban are hoping to tempt the 52-year-old to undertake a second spell at San Siro by promising a project and the chance to bring in four or five important signings this summer.

Allegri spoke to the Associated Free Press about his sabbatical and about his plans for the future.

“In September I need to come back. If I don’t I’ll get too used to being on holiday and I’ll never work again!” Allegri said during the interview near PSG’s Parc des Princes stadium.

“I still have three more months of holiday and that’s good for me. I won’t speak about my future, because there isn’t anything to talk about for now, and also because it would be disrespectful to the other coaches to do so.”

Allegri also revealed that he is indeed learning English but said that it was simply for personal reasons.

“I learn English for my personal culture, because when I go I can’t communicate,” he said.
