Allegri downplays Chelsea link

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has rubbished reports that have surfaced saying that he is in line to takeover at Chelsea.

Speculation has been growing in recent weeks about Guus Hiddink's replacement come the end of the season and Allegri is said to be the Blues' top target.

Allegri, who boasts a very strong CV after winning the league in Italy with both Juventus and A.C. Milian, has strongly denied these claims and says he is only focused on winning trophies with Juventus.

"There's nothing to it. I cannot either confirm or deny something that doesn't exist." he told Sky Italia. "I want this matter over and done with now. What's important for me right now is to get to the end of the season with Juventus and try and win some silverware."

Allegri has the chance to add more silverware to Juventus' trophy cabinet as they are only two points adrift Serie A leaders Napoli, while they have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League where they will be coming up against Bayern Munich.
