With a second successive league and Cup double in the bag, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was handed a fresh challenge on Sunday — as bookmakers jokingly speculated on which player would next date his daughter.

Valentina Allegri, a 21-year-old student with model looks, has become a social media phenomenon thanks to a series of videos and clips in which she sings about and celebrates the club’s achievements.

Now bookmakers have playfully speculated on which Italian league player could next date Allegri’s prized possession.

She has previously dated former footballer Francesco Lopapa, but France and Juventus star Paul Pogba is now odds-on.

Juventus striker Simone Zaza, a friend of Lopapa, is available at 6/4 while punters can get 3/1 for Domenico Berardi and Andrea Belotti.

Sassuolo striker Berardi is expected to move to Juventus this summer while Belotti currently plays for Juve’s cross-town rivals Torino.

Paulo Dybala finished Juve’s top scorer in the league with 19 goals and the 22-year-old Argentinian is at 6/1.

Given their fiery reputations and coach Allegri’s no-nonsene approach, two other Argentinians, Boca Juniors striker Pablo Dani Osvaldo and Inter striker Mauro Icardi, are at 14/1.

Osvaldo is a reputed playboy who was last week criticised by club bosses for publishing nearly nude photos of himself on social media.

Icardi is married to Wanda Nara, the ex-wife of Torino striker Maxi Lopez. Lopez and Icardi were close friends at Sampdoria but when Lopez’s marriage to Nara fell apart, Icardi nipped in and eventually married Nara in 2015.

Taking things to the extreme, bookmakers slapped odds of 19/1 on Uruguayan midfielder Martin Caceres, whose tender relations with Allegri were strained last year after he crashed his car for a second time.

Former Juve frontman and notorious playboy Christian Vieri, meanwhile, closed the book at 24/1.
