Wolverhampton Wanderers have been linked with a move for Aaron Ramsey – but Max Allegri has seemingly suggested he wants him to stay at Juventus.
The midfielder’s future has been up in the air recently.
It has been a bit of an underwhelming spell for him in Italy, and he is on massive wages.
He only made 13 starts in Serie A last term under Andrea Pirlo.
Allegri is back at the helm though now, and it seems the 53-year-old sees value in the Wales star.
He said after Ramsey featured for Juve against Monza yesterday (Football Italia): “I don’t know about that. The club takes care of the transfer market, we talk every day.
“Ramsey played very, very well in front of the defence and I think in that role he can really become an important player.
“I think if Ramsey can be convinced to play in front of the defence, he can really do well there.
“He already can see passing channels, has a good sense of the geometry of the field and can also rest on the ball more than he does upfront.”
The publication also said that Tottenham Hotspur were keen.
An unlikely move now even more unlikely
Ramsey trotting out in Old Gold always seemed like it was going to be an unlikely sight.
Allegri’s comments probably now make Ramsey to Wolves near-impossible.
It is not out of the question Ramsey could push for an exit.
But Allegri is someone who is a highly respected tactician and a serial winner.
The chance to work under him probably greatly appeals to Ramsey, and Allegri’s praise suggest he rates the ex-Arsenal man’s qualities.
