Juventus coach Max Allegri is furious with agent Mino Raiola touting Matthijs de Ligt for a move to AC Milan.

Raiola made the comment on the eve of Juve's clash with Milan on Sunday.

"There is a standard path for everybody, players and coaches. De Ligt is a young player with quality, but he still needs to improve and will stay many years at Juventus, regardless of how many games he plays," rapped Allegri.

“De Ligt is 22 years old. He is an excellent player. He joined Juventus from Ajax when he was only 20. After he arrived here, somebody wrote: 'He is a future Ballon d'Or winner.'

“Guys, calm is needed. He is 20, but the Juventus jersey is a heavy one. Chiellini was probably not as good as De Ligt at his age, but at 27-28, he became a great player. It takes time."
