Allegri and Marchisio extend their stay

Massimiliano Allegri signed a new one year contract extension which will be keeping him in Juventus at least until 2017. The Italian manager went through an incredibly successful season as the coach of Juventus during his first season in charge as he pushed Juventus to their 4th successive Serie A title and the Coppa Italia silverware as well.

Juventus also somehow managed to squeeze into the finals of the 2014-15 season of the Champions League and even though they eventually lost against Barcelona, it still was an impressive sight to see an Italian club getting so far in the European competition taking into consideration the downfall that the Italian sides have been experiencing in these past few years.

“Allegri has recently extended his contract by a further year. Allegri is our leader and has enjoyed an extraordinary first season at the helm, taking the team to another level,” club president Andrea Agnelli said.  Juventus are favourites with betting companies such as StanJames to repeat that feat this season.

Claudio Marchisio on the other hand penned a new contract which will allow him to continue wearing the Juventus jersey until 2020. For over 5 years, Marchisio has been a regular starter with the Italian club and is a key figure which has helped Juventus in winning their 4 latest Serie A titles.

One of the main talking points of Juventus of this summer transfer window was whether Paul Pogba, the French midfielder, was actually available to be signed – it was rumoured that he was for sale to any club who was wiling to stump up around €90 million.

Manchester City had already splashed out €49 million in signing Raheem Sterling as the player made his move from Liverpool over to Manchester City and so far has become the most expensive transfer from this summer which ruled out the clubs with the deepest pockets from securing the services of the 22 year old French player.

There are a number of clubs that are interested in signing Paul Pogba but none of those clubs have agreed on spending that much money in the player and for the time being, the future of Pogba remains with Juventus but it might change soon.
