Allegri admits he planned to hand the captaincy to Bonucci this season

Jordi Mestre has added weight to reports of a contract offer being made to Allegri

Juventus coach Max Allegri admits he planned to hand the captaincy to Leonardo Bonucci this season.

Bonucci joined AC Milan last month.

“Bonucci’s departure? I’m really sorry about it,” Allegri told Premium Sport.

“Leo would’ve been Juventus’ future captain, the man of the dressing room to convey what Juve were about to the younger lads. But he made a choice.

“The club and Coach won’t blame him [for leaving]. No-one’s to blame.”
