While Manchester United are seemingly sticking with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for now, their rights to replace him could be reduced as Massimiliano Allegri is being massively linked with a return to AC Milan.
The Red Devils seem to be in it for the long haul with the Norwegian head coach, as he has been busy building a long-term plan at Old Trafford since being appointed permanently.
However, with Manchester United still struggling to break back into the top four in the Premier League and falling short of competing for significant honours, question marks will only continue to be asked of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer until he restores their former glories.
As noted by the Daily Mail, Massimiliano Allegri has been a long-time target for Manchester United, and it has been suggested previously that he was even holding out for the job.
Things change quickly though, and as per La Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan are said to want to appoint Massimiliano Allegri for a second time to oversee a long-term project at the club to get them back to where they are desperate to be.
Assuming that Manchester United stick with Solskjaer, they could now miss out on Massimiliano Allegri if he chooses a return to San Siro in the coming months, and so there will perhaps need to be talks at Manchester United over the situation and their plan moving forward.
Massimiliano Allegri has firmly established himself as one of the top managers in Europe after winning six Serie A titles in total, one of which was with AC Milan in 2011, as well as a string of domestic cups.
While he has fallen short twice in his bid to win the Champions League, there is no doubt over his qualities as a head coach, but it now looks as though Manchester United could be set to miss out if they did indeed have plans of lining him up as a replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if things don’t improve.
