Massimiliano Allegri established himself as one of the most respected tacticians in world football while managing AC Milan and Juventus.

Manchester United is struggling mightily nowadays with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s inability to steady the ship for the Red Devils.

As expected, Ed Woodward is slowly looking at his alternatives for the managerial spot.

Even though Solskjaer is still the manager, it looks like the Norwegian isn’t up for the task.

A free agent and a perfect solution seems to be on the horizon. Massimiliano Allegri has plenty to offer, having proven himself numerous times in the past.

Winning Serie A both with Milan and Juve, Allegri’s CV includes some tactical masterclasses, against, among others, Pep Guardiola.

However, Manchester United will face competition for the Italian manager.

Bayern Munich just sacked Niko Kovac, leaving an opening on their bench.

Fabio Capello, a well respected Italian manager, gave his thoughts on the situation.

“He’d be a good fit at Bayern Munich, although I don’t know how welcome Italians are in Germany after Ancelotti,” commented Capello, as quoted by 101GreatGoals via Football Italia.

“England’s exciting, there’s the possibility of working well and the Premier League is a championship that enriches you.”

“If I was Allegri, I’d go to Manchester.”

Capello also reflected on Sarri’s situation at Juventus, adding:

“In general, without an idea you can’t go forward.

“Sarri has understood that even he needs to go for the results at this moment, more than good play.

“Sarri is playing the players who can give him the best results.”
