Massimiliano Allegri is ‘very close’ to agreeing a deal to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United’s manager, according to reports.
Solskjaer has endured a difficult start to the season and the Premier League giants sit 15 points off the top just eight matches in.
And now, according to Tuttosport, United’s hierarchy are ready to act and are closing in on the appointment of former Juventus boss Allegri in a deal worth £6.5m a year.
Tuttosport’s front page on Wednesday says that Allegri is closing in on a deal to take over at Manchester United
It has been reported by the Italian paper that Allegri wants to bring former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can and Mario Mandzukic, the Croatian striker, with him as he plans an overhaul at Old Trafford.
Last season, Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United before Christmas and there is the possibility that Solskjaer could suffer the same fate.
Following United’s latest defeat, away at Newcastle before the international break, talks with Allegri are said to have intensified.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are also keeping tabs on the ex-Juventus boss with the future of their own manager 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 as possible to revive the club’s ‘already-compromised’ season.
