Manchester United want Massimiliano Allegri to replace Louis Van Gaal as manager.
Reports claim that United are lining up a deal to hire Juventus boss to replace the Dutch coach at the Theatre of Dreams.
Van Gaal’s management has been subject of criticism in recent weeks, with rumours that United’s players are not happy with his methods. The Dutchman had planned to leave Old Trafford in 2017 when his current contract expires.
Reports suggest that the Red Devils have been impressed with the 48 years old’s style of play at Juve and they are now keen on a deal. Juventus would fight to hang on to their manager but United could offer a tempting package to bring him to England.
Allegri was the former coach of Italian side AC Milan before he was relieved of his duties at the San Siro based club. But when Juventus coach resigned and took up the National team job, Allegri was appointed as his successor and he went on to win the Scudetto and also got Juventus all the way to the URFA Champions league final where they lost to FC Barcelona.
Allegri would offer United a different style compared to Louis Van Gaal as the United fans demand an attacking brand of football.
