Barca refuse to rule out Allegri

Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri has not been ruled out as a candidate for a summer move to the Camp Nou by Barcelona director Ariedo Braida.

Braida – who worked alongside Allegri at AC Milan – refused to confirm or deny rumours the Italian is one of a number of potential successors for Luis Enrique this summer, although the list is ‘top secret’.

"Allegri is a friend and we know each other very well, but it's really not something we can talk about – it’s all top secret," Braida told Italy's Radioanch'io Sport.

"There's a different name coming out every day in the Spanish media, from Valverde to Sampaoli, from  Koeman to Eusebio, who is coach of Real Sociedad and is a part of the Barcelona family.

“Everything is possible. It's something I would prefer not to talk about."

Allegri has won back-to-back Serie A titles since joining the Turinese club in 2014, and has also been linked to Arsenal.
