Manchester United is reportedly considering former director of Juventus Massimiliano Allegri as a possible replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the under-fire director.
United players are officially expecting the Norwegian to be relieved of his duties at Old Trafford after a sad start to the 2020-21 season when the Red Devils suffered home defeats at Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur.
It is suspected that the 20-time English champions have named former Leader Mauricio Pochettino as the successor to Solskjaer, but now another major name seems to have come into the equation.
Reporter Duncan Castles said in the Transfer Window Podcast about the supposed split with Bruno Fernandes in Old Trafford: “There is dissatisfaction with the club and dissatisfaction with the chairman. It’s not entirely surprising to me that this happened, that this perception of Solskjaer is a typical pattern in the dressing room.”
Fernandes is known to be highly competitive as an individual, he comes across as a very sweet and unsuspecting guy, but it’s a different story to speak to those who know him.
“This, I think, adds a great deal to the strain on Solskjaer. This longstanding interest in Mauricio Pochettino has been united. But there are other choices on the market, including Max Allegri, who would be a candidate but is not in touch with the United States.”
Since finishing Juventus in 2019, Allegri has been out of reach, winning five Series A titles in a row with the Old Lady.
