Man Utd on the cusp of hiring Allegri

LONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 16 – Manchester United are reportedly close to securing the services of former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri to take over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer has endured a difficult start to the season, and United are already 15 points off rivals Liverpool at the top after just eight games.

United’s hierarchy are closing in on the appointment of former Juventus boss Allegri in a deal worth £6.5m a year, reports Tuttosport.

The Italian boss is unemployed after leaving Juventus at the end of the last campaign but only after he lifted a fifth consecutive Serie A title.

Last season, Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United before Christmas and the pressure is now building on Solskjaer.

Talks with Allegri are said to have intensified following United’s latest defeat to Newcastle.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are also keeping tabs on the ex-Juventus boss with the future of Mauricio Pochettino still unclear.

The situation is expected to be cleared up relatively quickly, with Allegri pushing for United to decide quickly as he wants as much time to revive the club’s ‘already compromised’ season.
