Allegri pens new Juventus deal

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has committed himself to another three years at the Old Lady after penning a contract extension on Wednesday.

Allegri's previous deal was due to expire in 2018, but his new agreement sees him remain at the helm until 2020.

The Italian fell just short of claiming the Champions League title this season after losing 4-1 to Real Madrid in the final. But he has enjoyed terrific success domestically, leading the team to their third consecutive double.

"Side by side, Juventus and Allegri have created history and legend," read a statement on the club's official website. "Now is the time to make the next step forwards together.

"Today's agreement extends a working relationship that has seen the Bianconeri consolidate their position as Italy's top team and also evolve into one of European football's major forces."
