Just as many had thought Juventus was poised to continue their dominance in the Italian Serie A, manager Antonio Conte decided to resign from the position according to Goal.com and other sources. Conte guided Juventus to three straight Serie A titles and signed a one-year extension in May. What made Conte decide to leave Juventus? It’s possible that Conte could be poised to become the next Italy coach which led to his decision to leave Juventus by mutual consent. However, nothing on a move to the Italian naitonal team has been known and more will transipre about Conte’s surprising resignation moving forward.

Conte’s decision to leave Juventus may have some dire repercussions regarding Arturo Vidal’s possible move to Manchester United. With Conte gone, a whole new system might be installed at Juventus which could really frustrate Vidal and his play. Despite Vidal’s nagging knee injury that is holding negotiations at a standstill, this could be the final push that Vidal needs to arrive at Old Trafford. Vidal will have a decision to make and the €42 million transfer tag might be lowered.

Conte has been terrific at Juventus so why would he actually leave Juventus? Speculation will most likely range from the extravagant to the simplest answers.

Last season, Juventus dominated the league by achieving 102 points which trounced the second place team, Roma, by seventeen points – simply remarkable.

Juventus has the best team in Italy but what does this mean for next season’s campaign. Looking at the roster, Paul Pogba was recently named the best young player at the 2014 World Cup, Gianluigi Buffon can still compete at a high level, Mirko Vucinic is a complete striker and Kwadwo Asamoah is a quick up-and-coming midfielder. Also, Juventus still has the ageless wonder, Andrea Pirlo.

Juventus will be fine in the long run without Conte as the manager, but the loss of the head coach will mean that players might want to leave and seek greener pastures in Europe.
