Juventus managerMassimiliano Allegri is said to havedemanded more power over the every-day running of Juventus before signing a new contract.

Italian newspaper Il Tempo (via theMirror) reportthat the 49-year-old wants to sign a new four-year deal worth £4.3m, with his current contract set to expire at the end of next season.

It's said that Allegri wants an answer by the end of the month, and is demanding full control over transfers and the running of the club, which could prove to be a deciding factor to his future at the club as Arsenal monitor the situation.

The Italian replaced Antonio Conte in Turinin 2014, and his side look to be in full throttle as they speed towards yet another Serie A title this season, looking for a hat-trick of league triumphs in Allegri's three seasons.

Juve also take a 2-0 advantage into the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie againstPorto next week,as they look to progress further in the competition and add to the 2015 runners-up medals they collected under their current manager.

Last summer, Allegri admitted: I would certainly like to work abroad “ we will see in two years when I am out of contract.�

The Juve boss is also being linked with the Barcelona job after Luis Enrique publicly declared he would step down from the manager role at the end of the season. With a potential switch to the Camp Nou, Roma's Luciano Spaletti is favourtie for the Juventus job.
