Reports from the UK press suggest that Manchester United are considering Juventus manager Max Allegri to replace Jose Mourinho at the club.

The Reds sacked the Portuguese coach a few weeks back and replace him with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the interim with a view to assigning a permanent replacement at the end of the season.

ESPN, The Times, The Manchester Evening News and a number of other papers and news outlets report that Allegri is among the name of candidates as the club are committed to undergoing a “thorough and extensive” search over the next five months.

Mauricio Pochettino remains the clubs main priority but the reports suggests United are looking at a number of candidates.

The Times goes one step further by reporting that Allegri himself wants to be considered for the role with a suggestion that he’s looking for a new challenge away from Serie A.
