Italian club Juventus have announced that Massimiliano Allegri will not be their manager from the 2019/20 season.
"Massimiliano Allegri will not be on the Juventus bench for the 2019-2020 season", read a statement posted on the club website non Friday, May 17.
Since taking over the Old Lady in 2014, the 51-year-old has led Juve to five straight Serie A titles, as well as winning four consecutive Coppa Italia crowns between 2015 and 2018.
Frontrunner to replace Allegri, who is now expected to be a contender to take over at Paris Saint-Germain if Thomas Tuchel also leaves at the end of this season, is former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.
After meetings with Juve chief Andrea Agnelli, the club and the coach have chose to part ways this summer, despite Allegri having a year to run on his contract.
The Italian failed to pass the quarter finals this year after Ajax knocked out Juve to snuff out any hopes of Allegri lifting the cup with big ears.
After weeks of speculation, it was confirmed on Friday that Massimiliano Allegri will leave Juventus.
"The coach and the president, Andrea Agnelli, will meet together with the media at the press conference, which will be held tomorrow, Saturday, May 18". I'm satisfied working here and I'm not going anywhere.
"I enjoy reading and hearing everything", he said at the time.
Pep Guardiola has ruled out a move to Serie A and as the Spaniard stands on the cusp of an historic domestic treble he has little need to leave Manchester City, where he enjoys the full backing of the club.
"That is how I feel today, but football changes a lot". Next season may not be as good, but I am going to be manager of Man City.
