Massimiliano Allegri to leave Juventus at end of season

Juventus have announced head coach Massimiliano Allegri will leave the club at the end of this season.

Antonio Conte held preliminary negotiations with Juventus last month, in case they decided to part with Allegri, but Sky Sports News understands the former Chelsea boss has come close to agreeing a deal to become the new manager of Inter Milan.

Allegri has led Juventus to four successive league and cup doubles and two Champions League finals during his spell in charge.

Speaking after their disappointing Champions League quarter-final defeat to Ajax in April, Allegri said he expected to stay next season.

The Italian will remain in charge for Juventus’ final two Serie A matches of the season, having already secured the title last month.

In a brief statement on the club’s website, Juventus said: “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 2 pm (local time) in the press conference hall of Allianz Stadium.”
