Juventus have wrapped up a seventh consecutive Serie A title, holding off a strong challenge from Napoli to defend the Scudetto again.
Massimiliano Allegri has led the club to a fourth straight domestic double during his time at the club, with the Juve coach being linked with succeeding Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
If Allegri does depart, he will go out on a high, Juve adding the Serie A crown to the Coppa Italia title they won against AC Milan on Wednesday thanks to a 4-0 victory at the same Stadio Olimpico venue where the league title was clinched.
