Pep Guardiola
The Serie A champions are in the market for a new head coach after it was announced that Massimiliano Allegri would leave the club at the end of the season.

Despite leading the Old Lady to another league crown, a decision was made to replace Allegri as Juventus continue their pursuit of a Uefa Champions League title.

Allegri to leave Juventus

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri and Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi are among those linked with the job, while reports in Italy surfaced tipping Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola with the vacant position.

Guardiola spearheaded City to an unprecedented domestic treble this season, but like Juventus the Sky Blues fell at the quarterfinal stage of Europe's top competition.

"It's a strange world, we've not had any contact with Guardiola and nor have we ever thought about it given that he's under contract," Juve's sporting director Fabio Paratici said to DAZN when quizzed on the matter.

"We want to build the best team possible and we will act on the recommendations of the new manager.

"We will wait until the end of the season. There are still competitions ongoing and I think we should keep quiet out of respect for others," he concluded.
