Juventus director Beppe Marotta insists Max Allegri won’t be leaving any time soon, but Patrice Evra “is considering his future.”
Evra is not in the squad yet again, as he evaluates offers from Valencia and Crystal Palace.
“There’s nothing new to report, he is considering his future,” Marotta told Mediaset Premium.
“He is a professional and his contract with us is due to expire in June.”
This week Juventus invested in the future, buying up Mattia Caldara from Atalanta and Ascoli winger Riccardo Orsolini.
“The ‘Made in Italy’ needs to be invested in. We need more courage to buy young Italians and give them time to grow. For this season we bought Tomas Rincon because he was quite simply an opportunity on the market and he has the characteristics to complete our midfield.
“It’s difficult to replicate the kind of midfield we had in the past, as you don’t find players like Arturo Vidal, Andrea Pirlo and Paul Pogba on the market now. Maybe we are a little weaker in that area than in the past, but the squad has to be considered as a whole.
“We are highly competitive for our objectives.”
Allegri has been linked with Arsenal for next season, as he is learning English, but Marotta is not concerned.
“It is his third year with us and I think it’s more than possible for a Coach to stay with a club for three or four years. I don’t understand this constant desire to change.
“There are other Coaches whose contracts are running down and nobody talks about them like this. Allegri is a winning tactician, we see no reason to lose him.”
