Right so how many managers have we had that we let go to join another club?

It's easy to say if a manager wants to leave he will but it just doesnt happen.

No because we always fire them before it becomes relevant. The only exception is Sarri. How did we handle that?

Badly .

Took us to court (twice iirc) and won (twice)

Which is surprising given the entire clubs football board appears to be run by lawyers .

I guess he must have signed a 2nd contract then.

Handled excellently I reckon - stop him from working elsewhere at any cost.  
Courts aren't about fairness or winning or losing.  They are about abuse of power.

CV still looks impressive with Conte being on track to his 5th league title in 10 years. 

However his European record is not so impressive. 

Probably a PSG contender in the near future.

Great coach....     yes.  
Juve should have hired him.  10 points behind and out of the CL already.

Yep, well done Roman and the Board. That was exactly the way to deal with him.

We fired him and he now manages Inter. Anything else?

We fired him ... Then he couldn't work for ages and missed out on the job he wanted and had been flirting with ... And now he manages Inter, who most in world football would consider a step down in current prestige from both the job he lost and the job he lost out on. If spite was the objective, you'd have to say objective achieved. 

He's still a good coach, mind, so (unfortunately? Idk, I don't hugely care what he goes on to do) that spite will only go so far. Perhaps only until May.

Something quite comfortable about not posting much for a a while and then popping back straight into a Conte argument. You never have to worry you missed anything!

That is literally the only example. So when you say if he wants to leave he will leave, chances are if we want him to stay he wont as we have never let a manager leave that we wanted to stay.

So, if you were a manager taking over a job mid season, knowing full well that 4 or 5 of the biggest jobs in Europe were potentially up for grabs in the foreseeable future you would insist on a long term contract because if you wanted to leave you just would, even though their is no evidence that the club would allow it?

I really dont think it is that much of a stretch to think Tuchel did not want a long term contract, at this stage.
