Massimiliano Allegri has rejected Tottenham's approach to become their new manager, according to reports in Spain.

The reports come as a blow to the north London club, who are still looking for a permanent successor to Jose Mourinho after the Portuguese was sacked in April following 17 months in charge.

Ryan Mason has been put in temporary charge, with Mourinho having already landed another post after being confirmed as Roma's next manager for the new season.

But Diario AS claim former Juventus boss Allegri was asked to take the reins on a permanent basis.

However, the Spanish outlet adds the 53-year-old - who has been out of work since leaving the Serie A side two years ago - turned down their advances because he is waiting to see whether Zinedine Zidane remains Real Madrid's boss.

Sportsmail reported last week that Zidane was set to walk away from the Bernabeu at the end of the season, with the Frenchman feeling he is not backed by president Florentino Perez.

Allegri and Real Madrid Castilla coach and legendary former striker Raul are believed to be the two frontrunners should Zidane depart the Spanish capital, with the LaLiga side valuing the Italian's experience at the highest level.

Allegri - who has also been linked with a return to Juventus following their disastrous Serie A and Champions League season -  has rejected Madrid's advances once before, when he was approached following Zidane's departure after the 2018 Champions League final victory against Liverpool in Kiev.

Speaking about the situation in March this year, Allegri told Sky Italy: 'When Real Madrid called me three years ago, I had promised to Juventus that I would remain. That's the only one I turned down.'

Julen Lopetegui was hired instead a few months before he was replaced by Santiago Solari, who in turn was succeeded by the current incumbent.

Zidane angrily rejected claims in the Spanish press at the weekend that he had told members of Los Blancos' squad that he would be leaving at the end of the current campaign.

However, he refused to rule out a departure if his side are pipped to the league title by city rivals Atletico Madrid following the completion of the final matchday of the season.

'How could I tell the players I'm leaving now? We're giving our everything for the title and I just say 'by the way, I'm off'?,' Zidane said.

'People outside the club can say whatever they like, but I would never, ever say that to my players.'

'We can't just keep talking about my future. The last game of the season is far more important than that.'

AS claim Zidane will announce his decision regarding his future to Perez in a private meeting at the beginning of next week.
