Fabrizio Romano suggests Max Allegri could join Real Madrid, amid Spurs links
Spurs look like they’ve been dealt another blow in their search for a new manager, this time thanks to Real Madrid with Max Allegri.
Rumours are rife that Zinedine Zidane is set to leave his role at the Bernabeu this summer. Goal reported yesterday that Zidane had indeed told his players he was off, with a return to Juventus a potential option.
And according to Fabrizio Romano, that could have implications for Spurs and their pursut of Max Allegri. Romano, taking to his Twitter account last night, hinted that Allegri would be keen on taking over in Madrid, if offered the role.
Real Madrid president Perez called Allegri three years ago. Allegri turned the offer down because he had an agreement with Juventus to stay.
Now Allegri is available, there’ve been direct contacts and he’d accept Real Madrid job.
There are three names in the list – Raúl too.

Romano’s update comes just days after the Evening Standard claimed Allegri, along with Rafa Benitez, would be open to taking the Spurs job. However, a move to Madrid is an enticing one.
Spurs fans will no doubt see this another kick in the teeth. It seems that on a weekly basis they seem to be missing out on targets to replace Jose Mourinho at the helm.

And that’s the harsh reality facing Spurs and Daniel Levy. Ultimately, there are bigger fish out there in the pond and Real Madrid are certainly one of them.
Allegri would be silly not to take a job in Madrid. It’s the pinnacle for most managers and while it’s high pressure, the rewards can be great.
Spurs, then, need to get their foot down in their manager hunt or face losing out on all the best coaches around.
