MAX ALLEGRI is in pole position to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, according to reports.
The Italian left his role as Juventus boss at the end of last season and is currently on a sabbatical.
But with United continuing to struggle for form, Italian outlet Sportmediaset believe the Old Trafford club are lining up Allegri for next season.
By the time the inaugural winter break in the Premier League came around, United were six points adrift of Chelsea in fourth – although fifth should be in enough for Champions League qualification due to Manchester City's Uefa ban.
They failed to win any of their three Prem fixtures before the break – losing 2-0 to Liverpool and Burnley before a drab 0-0 draw with Wolves.
United are still in the FA Cup and Europa League and Solskjaer will be desperate to win the club their first piece of silverware for three years before the end of the season.
But if United want to bring in a serial winner, Allegri fits the bill.
