Allegri won five consecutive Serie A titles with Juventus, establishing them as one of the most feared teams in Europe since replacing Antonio Conte in 2014.
The club only lost 19 times in 188 games under the 51-year-old, a win ratio of 75.5%.
He brought in the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Douglas Costa and Blaise Matuidi, among other big names, as he picked up eleven trophies in five years.

So who will takeover at the Allianz Stadium?
According to Oddschecker, Pep Guardiola is the favourite to become Juventus' new boss at 5/2 with Paddy Power.
Former manager Antonio Conte is second favourite, while Diego Simeone, Laurent Blanc and Carlo Ancelotti are also mentioned.
Former Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio thinks the only person he'd like to see take charge of the club is Jurgen Klopp:
"The one coach I would want if Allegri goes is Klopp. However, he is one coach that cannot be had." he told
"I love his game to death, and his way of playing football. He would do very well in the Italian game.
"But if Allegri stays, I wouldn't see anything wrong with it, because he is a coach that always wins, and that doesn't come cheap."
