Massimiliano Allegri has seemingly confirmed he will stay on as Juventus boss, despite holding talks with Arsenal.

The Juventus manager was interested in the vacant position at Arsenal, but has concerns over how the club is run.

Allegri does not like the idea of relinquishing power over transfers and was alarmed Arsenal were only willing to offer £60million in transfer funds, according to the Independent.

Mikel Arteta and Unai Emery are now in pole position to take over from Arsene Wenger, as Allegri spoke out on the links to the London club on Friday.

He said: ‘There is a very high percentage, I’ve never had any doubts. ‘Next week, I’ll meet with the club as we start to make the team competitive again just like last year.

‘I am happy at Juve and I have an excellent relationship with the club.’

Allegri will be hoping to be given a large war chest this summer as he targets a move for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.

Arsenal want to appoint their new manager before the start of the World Cup and are also hopeful to have their transfer business done by then.
