Former Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri has his eye set for the Manchester United job should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be sacked, MySportDab reports.
The 52-year-old left Juventus last summer after winning his fifth consecutive Serie A title and is looking for a fresh challenge.
MySportDab understands since leaving Juve, Allegri has refused to be rushed into management hoping to eventually get the Manchester United job.
It is believed Arsenal did approach him in December as they searched for Unai Emery’s replacement as manager.
Solskjaer is not scared of the sack, but he admitted that Tuesday’s first-half loss in the Carabao Cup semi-final Vs Manchester City was the worst his team have played all season.
United have won only two of their last six matches.
Allegri has offers from other European clubs and is the perfect high-profile candidate United could hire if Solksjaer is sacked.
Allegri is expected to demand a defined structure at his next job, having previously worked with strong sporting directors at Juventus.
MySportDab also understands that Mauricio Pochettino is still monitoring the situation at Manchester United after being sacked by Tottenham.
