He reportedly wanted Giacomo Bonaventura or Roberto Pereyra, while Giuntoli signed Carlos Alcaraz on loan with an option to buy from Southampton and Tiago Djalo on a permanent transfer from Lille.“Luckily, this situation will soon be over,” Allegri said. According to the report, Allegri is also disappointed by Giuntoli’s attitude.

While the director confirmed his trust in Allegri during public interviews this season, he met Motta in February and refused to discuss the future with Allegri privately. According to the report, Allegri believes Giuntoli should have been more transparent with him and the players. On the contrary, he was delegitimized inside the dressing room, and footballers didn’t take responsibility.

“This season, I was the lightning rod; let’s see who will be next season,” Allegri concluded. On another note, the coach and Tuttosport editor have cleared the air after an altercation on Wednesday night, as confirmed in an official statement released by ANSA. Allegri reportedly insulted and threatened the Italian journalist on Wednesday night after winning the Coppa Italia at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

The Italian tactician denied allegations through his lawyer on Thursday evening, but Vaciago replied that many witnesses had seen what happened at the Olimpico. Allegri and Vaciago met in Turin on Friday and confirmed they had cleared the air with an official statement published by news agency ANSA.

“With regards to the events that followed Atalanta-Juventus and regarding the confrontation through the media they had yesterday, coach Massimiliano Allegri and Tuttosport editor Guido Vaciago say that, after talking to each other, they have solved the regrettable situation involving them, clarifying all aspects with collaboration and sense of responsibility,” the statement reads.

“Allegri regretted what happened on Wednesday night, explaining that he did not mean to threaten or insult Guido Vaciago. So they resumed that atmosphere of cordiality, relaxation and utmost respect at a personal and professional level.” it further read.

Juventus are still expected to sack Allegri before the next Serie A match against Bologna at the Stadio Dall’Ara. The Bianconeri could release an official statement today, Friday, May 17. The Italian tactician could have taken charge of his final training session at Continassa this morning.


The Bianconeri had their Serbian striker, Dusan Vlahovic to thank as he led them to victory in the Coppa Italia Final. The striker has been in fantastic form for much of this season, delivering top performances that show why they spent so much on him.

He was the club’s most dangerous player during their game against Atalanta in the Italian Cup final last night. He scored the only goal of the game and had another strike disallowed for offside. Juve wanted to sell Vlahovic last summer, and some reports have suggested he might be put up for sale again this summer.

However, a report on Tuttomercato claims the men in black and white have now taken him off the market. The report claims Juve now considers him a major asset to keep and build the team around, and the Bianconeri will not sell him. However, the former Fiorentina forward must be willing to negotiate a new contract because the club cannot afford the €12 million they are expected to start paying him from next season.
