Siena President Massimo Mezzaroma says it would be "stupid" to try and block Coach Antonio Conte's proposed summer switch to Juventus.
"If Conte decides to leave then it would be stupid and wrong to try and stop him," the Tuscan chief noted.
"Juventus are not only a football club to Conte, but they are much more.
"We have spoken about such a possible move happening, but, for the time being, he is still under contract with us."
Conte has just led Siena back into the top flight after taking charge of the Stadio Artemio Franchi outfit less than a year ago.
The former Italian international, who spent 13 years at Juventus as a player and a captain, is expected to replace Gigi Del Neri in Turin at the end of the campaign.
