Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now reigned Manchester United for over a year now, although the expected revamp under the gaffer has not materialised yet. The Norwegian has been struggling this season particularly, failing to showcase consistency and rarely securing wins in the domestic league.

Despite having a decent squad at his disposal, the head coach is finding it difficult to compete in the Premier League as his side rests on the 5th position at the moment with the season having progressed a bit into its second half.

Nonetheless according to the Daily Mail, the former Juventus coach Max Allegri has been targeting the manager spot at Old Trafford for a while now.

The Italian is expected to become the man behind the wheels of the Red Giants if Solskjaer leaves the prestigious club in the upcoming months as per speculations.

After conquering the Serie A title for the fifth consecutive time with Juventus, the 52-year-old left the Italian side in the hopes of signing for a different team with more appealing challenges.
