Massimiliano Allegri has insisted that he is happy at Juventus despite the speculation linking him with the Chelsea FC and Arsenal jobs ahead of next season.

Chelsea FC are widely expected to change their manager this summer after a largely disappointing second campaign in charge for Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are currently in fifth place in the table and looking as if they are going to miss out on a top-four finish this season and with it a place in next term’s Champions League.

Arsene Wenger’s position at Arsenal has also been a source of uncertainty in recent weeks, and Allegri has been touted as a target for both of the London clubs ahead of next season.

However, the Juventus manager has now appeared to play down the speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League and he has underlined his commitment to the Serie A side.

Speaking to Mediaset Premium, Allegri said: “I have a contract until 2020 and I am happy here. I am in harmony with the club.

“I go on vacation when the transfer window opens because I trust the club completely.

“We still need to meet some objectives. If we don’t win the Scudetto and Coppa Italia they might not still want me. We’ll talk it over the way we always do, every year. There’s no difference.”

Chelsea FC came from two goals down to claim a 3-2 victory over Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Blues are set to take on the Saints once again in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley next weekend.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are sixth in the Premier League table after a 2-1 loss to Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday.
