Man Utd linked Max Allegri agrees deal to join ‘great English club’

Max Allegri TEAMtalk

Max Allegri has reportedly agreed a deal to manage ‘a great English club’, with the former Juventus boss formerly a target for Manchester United.

Allegri stood down as head coach of the Turin giants last summer, having guided the Serie A giants to five consecutive league titles.

And although Allegri has been linked with a move back to Juventus to replace the struggling Maurizio Sarri, Corriere dello Sport claims the 52-year-old already has an agreement in place with a club in the Premier League.

At this stage it remains unclear which club that is, although the publication refers to it as ‘a great English team’, and Allegri has been heavily linked with the Old Trafford hotseat in the past.

United have maintained that current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be given time to mould his Red Devils side, but speculation of a change has been rife throughout the season, with United struggling to break into the top four.

Manchester City could be another potential destination for Allegri, with Pep Guardiola currently facing his toughest season in management as Liverpool run away with the league. The Catalan chief has also been linked with Allegri’s old Juve job.



Meanwhile, a top level pundit has delivered a damning verdict on whether Jack Grealish and Raul Jimenez should up sticks and move to Man Utd, claiming they both deserve something the Red Devils can’t offer.

Villa talisman Grealish, 24, has been the clear standout performer at Villa Park this season, notching nine goals and seven assists.
