If Manchester United top echelons decide to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Massimiliano Allegri would be interested to take over the management responsibility at the Old Trafford claims David Amoyal, who works with Gianluca Di Marzio.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job at Manchester United has been in jeopardy for quite some time now and questions continue to be asked over his performance as manager as Man Utd sit 9th in the Premier League table. Allegri, on the other hand, has resolved to stay away from management until next summer following five years in charge of Juventus.
However, should the United job become available, Allegri would be interested in taking the United job, according to Amoyal.
As far as I know, Allegri’s plans have not changed- he intends to take rest of the season off. I think the one club he would make an exception for is Man United

Allegri would certainly not be the first-choice options for United fans, many of whom decided that Mauricio Pochettino was their man quite some time ago.
There is a tendency amongst us English to place Italian managers into the same bracket: irascible, conservative, deeply concerned with tactics, expressive on the touchline as his team maintains impeccable discipline on the pitch.
Allegri deserves to be seen as more than that. He is, for one thing, a remarkable speaker (albeit in Italian), as well as highly modern in his methods, invoking three at the back at Juventus as well as placing a strong emphasis on penetrating key areas of the pitch through breaking midfield lines.
Nonetheless, the 52-year-old seems like an outside chance to become the next United manager.
