Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has made it known that he wants to be considered for the Manchester United manager’s job next summer, according to the Times.

Manchester United have appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on an interim basis until the end of the season and want to carry out a thorough process before bringing in a permanent manager.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is Manchester United’s top target and the club are prepared to pay up to £40m to Spurs in order to get their man in the summer.

While Pochettino is the top target, the club could have more options should they fail to sign the Argentine.

Allegri wants to be considered for the manager’s job at Manchester United at the end of the season and is prepared to leave Juventus.

The 51-year-old has won four back-to-back league titles in Italy with Juventus and the Bianconeri have also played in two Champions League finals under him.

He has let it known that he would be very much interested in becoming the next permanent Manchester United manager.
