Massimiliano Allegri on Carlos Tevez's future and new signings


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says it's too early to talk about Carlos Tevez's future after the player said that he will not extend his contract when it expires in June 2016.

The 30-year-old has been one of the best players for the Bianconeri this season and Allegri believes the striker will respect his contract in a professional way until the very end.

"First of all there's still a year and a half to go before his contract runs out," Allegri said.

"Sometimes things change, maybe he was in a relaxed mood when he said what he said. But we're professionals and one can easily decide, for personal issues, to join another team or quit or to return to his country.

"But I'm not particularly concerned. He will continue to be a professional until the very end. He's a Juventus player and it'll be right to leave if in two years time he decides to go elsewhere.

"Just like life, football never stops, else we would still be in the era of Pele. When one stops, another joins. A coach leaves, another one comes. At the end of the day it's the club that is always there."

Rumours across Europe report that Wesley Sneijder will join Juventus this month but Allegri prefers to wait before understanding how to use the Dutch international in his team.

"First of all let's wait for Sneijder to come, he's still a Galatasaray player," Allegri added.

"Our objective is to improve the squad and to do so we have to sign players who are as quality as the ones we already have. Sneijder is a quality player, he showed it throughout his career.

"He would complete a midfield area that is already very strong."
