Reports: Conte to Juve, Allegri-PSG

Multiple sources now claim Max Allegri has agreed to leave Juventus this summer, probably for PSG, with Antonio Conte the favourite to replace him.

Sport Mediaset, La Stampa, La Repubblica and more all have the same story, suggesting Allegri and President Andrea Agnelli have decided to part ways after five years together.

The Bianconeri have won eight consecutive Serie A titles, three of them under Conte and the following five with Allegri on the bench.

Although both Allegri and Agnelli repeatedly stated to the media that they would be continuing together, they did leave the door open for a change of heart once they’d sat down to discuss their transfer strategy.

According to multiple sources, that summit was held this evening during the Champions League semi-final, which saw Tottenham complete an astonishing comeback from 3-0 down on aggregate to win 3-2 in Amsterdam, reaching the Final against Liverpool on away goals.

It was during that encounter that Allegri and Juventus directors agreed to part ways, with the most likely destination Paris Saint-Germain.

As for Juve, the favourite to take over is Conte, who has been out of work for a year after his experience at Chelsea came to an abrupt end.

Agnelli was not entirely convinced, but Pavel Nedved and Fabio Paratici seem to have done enough to secure his return after walking away in 2014.

Conte already told La Gazzetta dello Sport that he would not go to Roma, while Inter are also still hoping to bring in the former Italy tactician.
