Agent insists ex-Juventus boss Allegri not thinking about Man Utd

Former Juventus manager Max Allegri is not thinking about a return to management, according to his agent.

The Italian has been on a sabbatical this season, but reports continue to link him with replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

But Allegri's agent, Giovanni Branchini, says he isn't focused on any one job.

He told Calciomercato: "To date, nobody is thinking about their coach of next year.

"Everyone thinks of this season, we were therefore focused on this season.

"Max has enjoyed a peaceful year, he needed it.

"He is recharged and lives the reality that we are all living, we will see how things will go.

"Making assumptions today would be making fun of people."
