Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is living through his hardest days as a United manager yet, considering that they are 12th in the league.

With bad results racking up week after week, it’s very likely that Solskjaer could get the sack as Manchester United manager.

The main candidate to replace him is former Milan and Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri.

Max is on the market for a while now. He was sacked at the end of the last season with Juventus.

The Italian is patiently waiting for a big club to come and get him since he’s highly regarded in the footballing world as an expert.

At this moment, he is probably above Mourinho in terms of being sought after.

Tuttosport claims that Allegri and United already made first contacts and that the Red Devils are approaching the final deal.

This would put Allegri in a challenging situation of trying to revive the fallen giant, a job similar to Klopp’s at Liverpool.

It’s natural to expect United to want a change since the team isn’t showing any signs of progress whatsoever under Solskjaer.

Granted, the team also isn’t as strong as it used to be, but being tied with Sheffield United and Brighton in the Premier League is far below United’s ambition.

Allegri, on the other hand, is a proven winner. He’s won Scudetto with both Milan and Juventus, even going to Champions League final in 2015 with Juve.

His teams don’t play the most attractive football. However, United fans are desperate for some good results, so the art can suffer for now if needed.
