     Guti looks set to take charge at Real Madrid

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has said he turned down an approach to become the new coach of Real Madrid.

Although Tuesday's surprise announcement has since backfired on Lopetegui who was then sent packing by Spain today (Wednesday) on the eve of the 2018 World Cup. It was only fair that I stay where I am because it was a decision which I had already made; I had to respect which I had said to the club's directors without considering anything else.

"I am grateful to president Florentino Perez for taking me into consideration".

Allegri also hinted that he had been contacted by Chelsea regarding the possibility of replacing Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

"It was a decision I'd already taken, and even if other things can happen in life I'd say that I made the decision to stay at Juventus and respected what I'd said, without considering other options".

David and Victoria Beckham shut down divorce rumours with official statement
The Spice Girl's fans found it all pretty amusing and praised her for making a joke after the speculation about her relationship. A source told The Mail on Sunday: " Victoria was taken aback, but she found the whole thing very amusing ".

Before deciding on Julen Lopetegui, Florentino Pérez weighed up several different candidates for the coaching job at Real Madrid. "I simply informed this to all of those who came looking for me".

"At the moment, Juve are one of the best clubs in the world. I will look to continue the improvements that we began four years ago, alongside [Beppe] Marotta, [Fabio] Paratici, [Pavel] Nedved and the president".

Allegri also commented on the future of Gonzalo Higuain, who has been linked with a departure in the current transfer window.

"I've always said that the president will be the first to know if I want to leave, and the president will have to tell me if he wants to make a change". "Obliging players to stay does more harm than good".
