Allegri: "Florentino called me but I declined his offer"

Real Madrid stun football world with unveiling of Zidane's replacement

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has said he turned down an approach to become the new coach of Real Madrid.

And according to Spanish news outlet Don Balon, new Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui is desperate to sign Kante this summer.

Allegri also hinted that he had been contacted by Chelsea regarding the possibility of replacing Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Last month, Zidane stepped down from his position at the Bernabeu and on Tuesday, Spain coach Julen Lopetegui was announced as the replacement for the legendary Frenchman. "Let's just say that I have said yes to Juventus, respecting the agreement that I have struck with the board", he told Sky Sport.

"I spoke to the [Madrid] president once, and I said that out of respect for the [Juve] president [Andrea Agnelli], to whom I'd given my word, and Juventus, I'd be staying at Juventus".

"I have to thank the Real Madrid president, though, for giving me the chance to go there".

"I have always liked Juventus' plans, which are renewed every year with the aim of always winning. Juve is among the best clubs in the world and for me, it's a pleasure to work with Agnelli, Marotta, Paratici and Nedved".

Allegri has since won four straight Scudetti with the Old Lady, marking a record seven consecutive Serie A titles in total, while also reaching the Champions League final in 2015-16 where the club lost out to Madrid.

Allegri says he is not closing the door on Higuaín's possible departure: "Juve is strong enough to accommodate those who want to leave".

They say Lopetegui, who was sacked by Spain yesterday just 24 hours before the start of the World Cup, is a huge admirer of the midfield maestro.
