Massimiliano Allegri open to make Manchester United switch

By | January 24, 2020

Former Juventus head-coach Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly still hopeful that he will be handed opportunity to take over at Man Utd.

The 52-year-old tactician has been rumoured with a number of teams since departing from Juve at the end of the 2018-19 season, however, is still without a team in the early stages of 2020.

Italian boss’s name had been mentioned as a possible replacement for the Norwegian head-coach earlier this campaign due to Solskjaer’s struggles at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils boss appeared to have steadied the ship, however, Tuesday’s 3-1 defeat to their arch-rivals Manchester City in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final has led rumours surrounding the management position at the Red Devils.

According to the Daily Mail, former Juventus boss still has his eye on the top job at the Red Devils and has been holding off an immediate return to management in the hope of signing for the club and return to the job.

Despite the Red Devils struggles this season, they are only five points behind from fourth-placed Chelsea in the English top-tier ahead of this weekend’s clash with newly-promoted team Norwich City.
