Guardiola, Mourinho, Deschamps - who could replace Allegri at Juventus?

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is leaving after five seasons in which they dominated Serie A, the Italian club said on Friday.

Allegri arrived from AC Milan in 2014 and despite falling short of his dream of winning the Champions league, he led Juve to two finals in 2015 against Real Madrid and Barcelona in 2017.

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.

Last week Allegri said he was "amused" at rumours suggesting he would leave Juventus, Serie A champions for the past eight seasons.

"The coach and the President, Andrea Agnelli, will meet the media together at tomorrow's press conference - Saturday 18 May, at 2 the press conference hall of Allianz Stadium".

Juventus was eliminated by Ajax in the quarterfinals of this season's Champions League.

The dream appointment of the Juve board, the fans and quite possibly Ronaldo himself is Zinedine Zidane, but the former midfielder recently rejoined Real Madrid after leaving last summer, a decision the Frenchman may now be coming to regret. He also looks at potential options to replace Allegri at Juventus, including Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi and even the man Allegri replaced in Turin: Antonio Conte.

They have two league games remaining this season, starting with Atalanta at home on Sunday. "I am satisfied working with this club". "I will not be going to Italy, how many times do I need to say it?" he asked reporters at his press conference to preview the FA Cup final on Friday.

Allegri has perennially been linked with a move to the Premier League after his success in Italy. I am not going anywhere.

As the dust settled on Juve's season, the manager was of the opinion that a squad overhaul was required while the board felt that a chance of tack in tactics and approach was the right course of action after considerable investment in recent seasons.
