Former Juventus boss, Massimiliano Allegri wants Premier League move.
Massimiliano Allegri won the Serie A title with AC Milan in 2011 and it was the last time an Italian team apart from Juventus who won the title. The Italian manager has six Serie A titles to his name but he has been without a job for more than a year, with Premier League now his desired destination.
According to Goal.com, Allegri has stated his desire to manage a club in the Premier League. Manchester United and Arsenal have been linked with the former Juve manager since the end of the 2018/19 season. The Gunnars are currently 15th in the Premier League and pressure is building on Mikel Arteta. The North London club has won only one of their last 7 Premier League games.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job is also jeopardized after the team’s early exit from the UEFA Champions League. United fans have admired both Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino and see one of them as a possible replacement for their current boss.
United have struggled defensively this season and the side has conceded 6 goals to Spurs at home. Allegri’s arrival at the club will strengthen their defensive structure.
The Premier League has the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, and Marcelo Bielsa and the arrival of Allegri will be a huge boost in the viewership of the league.
Like United, Arsenal have also struggled defensively this season and their fans have started to question Arteta’s competence for the job and the majority of them thinks the job is too big for the Spaniard. Mikel Arteta who won the FA Cup and Community Shield in his first season at the club has surely struggled this season with the team selection and Aubameyang’s poor form in front of goal has been a huge setback for the club.
Both United and Arsenal should consider Allegri as a possible and ideal replacement for their current managers if things do not go right.
