The Colombian forward had been on the Juve radar for the majority of the summer, with the Italian champions looking to bring in another striker after losing new signing Alvaro Morata to a knee injury.

Manchester United announced on Monday they had acquired Falcao on a season-long loan from Monaco, with an option to make the deal permanent next summer.

"We missed out on Falcao? I'm not disappointed," Allegri said to Turin-based sports newspaper Tuttosport. "I am satisfied with the transfer market the club has done.

"Juve has made intelligent moves in the transfer market.

"We haven't bought players for the sake of it."

Juve spent 20million euros to sign Spanish striker Morata from Real Madrid and purchased French defender Patrice Evra from Manchester United for 1.5million euros.

Hellas Verona midfielder Romulo and Udinese midfielder Roberto Pereyra joined the Turin giants last month on a season-long loan while former Paris St Germain midfielder Kingsley Coman joined Juve as a free agent.

Juve began the Serie A campaign with a 1-0 win at Chievo,

Allegri's first Serie A game in charge since replacing Antonio Conte in the Bianconeri hotseat.
