Juventus reportedly contacted Jurgen Klopp in an attempt lure the German to take over this summer – but to no avail.
According to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri, the Serie A champions were keen to try and recruit Klopp.

The Old Lady confirmed on Friday that Max Allegri will leave the club at the end of the season.
He won five Serie A titles in five years but could not clinch a Champions League crown, despite reaching two finals.
It is understood, though, that Liverpool manager Klopp snubbed any approaches in favour of staying at Anfield.

Palmeri tweeted: “BOOM! Klopp has been contacted by Juventus, but with no consequence.”
But the post drew plenty of reaction from fellow users.
One said: “BOOM! What rubbish news.”
Another added: “So not really a ‘BOOM’.”
Of course, Klopp would surely have very little interest in moving away from the club he loves and where he is adored by fans and players alike.
After running Manchester City so close in the league this season, he will be hopeful Liverpool can go one better next term and lift the Prem for the first time.
But the Reds still have their second Champions League final in two seasons to look forward to still.
They were beaten by Real Madrid last year and will be desperate to make amends – and make it European Cup No6 – when they face Tottenham on June 1.
With Klopp off the cards, Antonio Conte is currently the favourite to take over at the Allianz Stadium this summer.
