Man Utd eyeing move for experienced Italian manager as Solskjaer’s replacement

Manchester United are reportedly identified Italian manager, Massimiliano Allegri as a potential replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has been under-fire recently due to the Red Devils poor form.

Following a woeful start to the 2020-21 campaign which has seen the 20-times English Champions suffer home loss to Crystal Palace and embarrassing 6-1 defeat with Tottenham Hotspur,

The Red Devils players are reportedly expecting the Norwegian to axe from Old Trafford in the nearby future.

Man Utd are believed to have identified ex-Spurs head-coach Mauricio Pochettino as Solskjaer’s successor, however, another big name now appears to be ex-Juventus boss, Massimilano Allegri.

Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast regarding an alleged rift with Bruno Fernandes at Old Trafford, journalist Duncan Castles said: “There is a discontent with the club and a discontent with the manager.

“It’s not entirely surprising to me that this has happened, it’s a common pattern in the dressing room – this opinion of Solskjaer.

“Fernandes is notorious for being highly competitive as an individual, he comes across as a very nice and unassuming individual, but talking to those who know him it’s a different story.

“I think this adds significantly to the pressure on Solskjaer. United have this long-standing interest in Mauricio Pochettino.

“But there are other options on the market including Max Allegri, who isn’t in contact with United but would be a candidate.”

Former Juve boss has been out of management since ending his stint at Serie A champions back in 2019, where he won five Serie A trophies in a row with the Old Lady.
