Juventus deny making an approach for Guardiola

27 May 2019, 07:00

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has denied claims that the club has spoken to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola about replacing Massimiliano Allegri.

Italian news agency AGI claimed on Thursday that Juve had reached an agreement with Guardiola for him to succeed the outgoing Allegri as head coach.

"I think we live in a strange world," he told DAZN. "We didn't have any contact. We never even thought about it because [Guardiola] is under contract. For a thousand reasons, it all seems very strange to me."

A host of names, including Mauricio Pochettino and Maurizio Sarri, have been linked with the job but Paratici says Juventus will not be rushed into a decision.

Ideas

"We have clear ideas," he said. "We have already said it; we are doing our evaluations and there are still many competitions in progress. Until all the competitions end, it seems to me right, out of respect for everyone to remain in this situation."

Paratici added that Juve is in no hurry to sign new players and are happy to wait until the new man is in place before entering the transfer market.

"We will act according to what the new coach's directives will be," he explained. "Before we move on, we will wait, very calmly. We try to improve every year."
