Massimiliano Allegri has reportedly agreed to end his five-year stay at Juventus in the summer.

Despite frequent denials by both Allegri and Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, doubts have continued to persist over the Italian coach’s future in Turin.

Allegri himself has been at the centre of a lot of criticism recently over his tactics, with Juventus winning just one of the last six games.

Not helping matters for the former AC Milan coach was his failure to lead the Bianconeri to their first Champions League title in 23 years, despite forking out €112m on signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid last summer.

Now, Italian news outlet La Stampa have claimed that Allegri reached an agreement with Agnelli to leave Juventus on Wednesday.

The 51-year-old is allegedly being lined up for a move to Paris Saint-Germain, who are considering firing Thomas Tuchel after just one season.

The French champions are understood to be underwhelmed by Tuchel, whose relationships with president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting director Antero Henrique are strained.

Szczesny reveals how he welcomed Ramsey

Both players were teammates at Arsenal before the goalkeeper moved to Italy; now Ramsey is set to join Juventus.

Whether or not Allegri does leave Juventus, though, remains debatable with no word of confirmation coming from either the coach or club.

Regardless, it seems clear that a massive summer overhaul in Turin is set to go ahead with stars like Miralem Pjanic and Paulo Dybala to be shown the door.

Football agent Donato Di Campli is convinced that a “revolution” is on the agenda following Juventus’ Champions League exit.

Among the Italian’s clients is winger Riccardo Orsolini, who is on loan at Bologna from Juventus this season.

“Allegri or no Allegri, there’ll be a revolution with the players and staff,” Di Campli told Tuttosport.

“A huge overhaul is needed, with some big ins and outs. There’s a need to plan again and renew.

“Pjanic and Dybala could be sacrificed. As for signings, I’m thinking [Matthijs] De Ligt, [Adrien] Rabiot. I have doubts over [Paul] Pogba and I think [Nicolo] Zaniolo is easier to get than [Federico] Chiesa.”
