Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is keen on joining Manchester United and has let it be known he’s ready to move to the Premier League. The Italian was keen on replacing Arsene Wenger last summer but the Gunners opted for Unai Emery. Allegri has won four consecutive Serie A titles with Juventus and took the Old Lady to Champions League finals in 2015 & 2017. Juventus have won seven league titles in a row and the last team to break their grip of Serie A was Allegri’s AC Milan side in 2011.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino remains United’s first choice to permanently replace Jose Mourinho but the club are fearful that the Argentine is hesistant to move to Old Trafford. Real Madrid are also keen on the Argentine, while United would have to pay a compensation package of around £34million to prise him away from north London. Allegri has been taking English lessons for the last 18 months and has ‘let it be known’ that he’s keen to take charge at United, according to the Times.
The Italian has 18 months to run on his contract at Juventus and is feasibly one of the few high profile managers ‘available’ in world football. United appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a caretaker role but Metro.co.uk understands the club will consider him on a permanent basis if they fail to obtain top target Pochettino.
