Massimiliano Allegri to leave Juventus after the club confirmed the Italian coach will leave the club at the end of the season, reports Dailymail.co.uk.

The 51-year-old Italian coach has won five Serie A titles and four Copa Italia’s during his five years in charge of the Turin-based side, as well as finishing runners-up in the Champions League in 2015 and 2017.

The club released a statement confirmed the news, which read: ‘Massimiliano Allegri will not be on the Juventus bench for the 2019/2020 season. ‘The coach and the President, Andrea Agnelli, will meet the media together at tomorrow’s press conference - Saturday 18 May, at 2pm in the press conference hall of Allianz Stadium.’ 

Mauricio Pochettino is among the favourites to replace Allegri.

Italian media reported that the club had made contact with the Tottenham boss last week, with the Argentine coach reportedly demanding an enormous £17million-per-year contract, according to Saturday’s Corriere dello Sport.

Pochettino himself has made it clear that he is seriously considering leaving Tottenham at the end of the campaign.
