Massimiliano Allegri has urged Juventus duo Alvaro Morata and Paul Pogba to remain at Juventus ahead of the 2016/17 season.

The Spanish striker has been heavily linked with a move away from Turin this summer amid interest from Champions League winners Real Madrid and Premier League side Arsenal.

Pogba, meanwhile, is thought to be one of Jose Mourinho’s top targets after the former Inter Milan manager took over the reins at Manchester United on Friday morning.

However, Allegri, who has won back-to-back Serie A titles since becoming Juventus manager in 2014, is optimistic that Morata and Pogba will remain at the Old Lady ahead of the new season.

“Gigi Buffon is staying, Pogba is staying, at least I hope he is…,” Allegri is quoted as saying by Football Italia.

“Morata? If I were him, I’d remain at Juventus. Right now he’s on international duty and I hope he comes back to Turin afterwards.”

Juventus finished as Serie A champions after another impressive campaign for the Turin side to claim their fourth successive Italian top-flight crown.
