Former Juventus head coach Max Allegri is prepared to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the next Manchester United boss, provided a couple of conditions are met.
The 52-year-old has been out of work since ending his association with the Bianconeri last season but he could make a return to management before the end of the year.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport via The Mail, the experienced manager is willing to take the hot seat at the Red Devils but he won’t be waiting for more than a few weeks for the club to make the decision.
United delayed the dismissal of former boss Jose Mourinho until December of last year but they may need to act sooner with Solskjaer’s position, given Allegri is unlikely to accept the role when the festive schedule kicks off.
Elsewhere, reports claim that Allegri would want assurances of a mid-season spending spree as he feels the squad needs to be bolstered further for a top four push.
It is added that a central midfielder and a striker remain the main priorities after the club missed out on their targets during the 2019 summer transfer window.
