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

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

It was confirmed on Friday that current Juventus manager Max Allegri will leave the club at the end of the season, sparking speculation that they could move to bring Sarri to Turin.

"Massimiliano Allegri will not be on the Juventus bench for the 2019/2020 season", a club statement read.

This was only the second time Juventus had won four consecutive Scudetto titles (the last time being from 1931 to 1935, when they won five Scudetto titles in a row).

Juventus reached the Champions League final in 2015 and 2017 under Allegri.

However, this season was still seen as a disappointment as the signing of five-times Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo failed to prevent Juventus being knocked out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals by Ajax.

The likes of Antonio Conte, Jose Mourinho and Didier Deschamps have all been linked with the Juventus job over recent months - hardly a shock considering their career achievements and, in the case of Conte and Mourinho, availability.

Juventus have yet to state who will replace Allegri. Conte delivered the Serie A title in each of his three seasons in charge of Juventus, winning the league with a record points total of 102 during the 2013-14 campaign. However, it seems Pep might simply be a pipedream for Juve: speaking on Friday, he told reporters: "How many times do I have to say?" I'm not going to move, I'm satisfied here, I'm not going anywhere.

Guardiola's City side will win their fourth domestic trophy of the season if they beat Watford in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Guardiola failed to win the Champions League at Bayern Munich and has yet to deliver it at Manchester City, with his last success in the competition coming with Barcelona in 2011.

"I like his game and I like his way of playing football until the death".
