Former Juventus coach Allegri seemingly confirms Pep Guardiola’s Juventus move

Former Juventus coach Allegri seemingly confirms Pep Guardiola’s Juventus move

Juventus mentor Massimiliano Allegri will leave his post at the end of the season.

The 2018/19 campaign saw them win the League Cup in February, before beating Liverpool to the Premier League title in May.

"How many times do I have to say?"

The claims came flying in after Radio Sportivo spotted Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici, leaving the Palazzo Parigi hotel where Guardiola was staying while attending a golf tournament.

Speaking before City completed an unprecedented domestic treble by hammering Watford 6-0 in last weekend's FA Cup final, Guardiola insisted he had no intention of moving to Juventus and club board member Alberto Galassi told Sky Italia the renewed reports were "a load of nonsense".

His contract with the English club will expire in 2021. "It will depend how I feel and if they want me", Pep said.

Galassi went on to reveal that he has discussed the rumours with Juventus vice-president Pavel Neved, who found the speculation as amusing as he did.

"The first thing a serious club does in these cases is to contact the other club".

Juventus shares, which reached a record high earlier this year, boosted by the Ronaldo signing, were up 3.3% to 1.49 euros at 1.19pm in Milan, compared with a 1.7% decline for Italy's FTSE MIB index.

Interestingly, the Italian champions have removed Friday, June 14, for sale of tickets to fans into the J-Museum and tour the Allianz Stadium, which is the same day that Guardiola is expected to be presented to the fans.

"He's our Coach and, he wants to stay with us".

"We laughed at these rumours, and we realised that this whole issue had become ridiculous".

"A manager of Manchester is coming", Allegri said, hinting that Guardiola is on his way to Italy.
