Manchester United have reportedly put together a shortlist of possible replacements for Jose Mourinho in the event he is sacked.
The Red Devils have struggled in the Premier League this season with the club currently sitting tenth and twelve points off leaders Liverpool ahead of their game against Everton on Sunday.
A number of issues have raised more concerns, with Mourinho reacting in the media and on the touchline and the United hierarchy reportedly telling him to ‘bite his lip’.
Now, an exclusive from the Express suggests that the club have two possible managerial targets in mind.
The report claims the Red Devils “would like either former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte or Juventus coach Max Allegri to take over the Old Trafford hot seat”.
There will be competition for Conte however, with reports suggesting that Julen Lopetegui could be sacked as Real Madrid boss and the Italian is a candidate to replace him, while AC Milan could also pursue Conte should they sack Gennaro Gattuso.
Allegri meanwhile has a contract with Juventus until 2020, though it has proven difficult to lure him away from Turin in the past.
