Sarri in talks to replace Allegri as Juventus manager



Coach Massimiliano Allegri will leave Serie A champions Juventus at the end of the season after guiding them to five straight Italian titles, the club said on Friday.

Allegri arrived in 2014 after four years at Milan and led Juve to five consecutive Serie A titles, securing the league and cup double in his first four seasons.

Interestingly, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been tipped to replace Allegri, while Agnelli reportedly prefers Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi to take charge of the Old Lady's next season.

But he has been unable to win a much-coveted Champions League crown, losing the 2015 and 2017 finals.

Allegri ends his time with the club one year early, terminating his contract by mutual consent, bringing his five-year spell with the club to an end.

Allegri and the Juve board have had several meetings in the past few days over the former AC Milan boss' future, and they decided he will step down after their final match of the season away to Sampdoria on May 26.

"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". On both occasions Juve were defeated by Spanish opposition, in Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.

Allegri has perennially been linked with a move to the Premier League after his success in Italy. "When I saw him play for his national team, I saw him sitting on the bench driving his team and shouting more than his Coach to make them win".

A success with Juve during his last period at the club between 2011 and 2014, Conte has been out of work since leaving Chelsea previous year.

"How many times do I have to say?" I'm not going to move.
