Massimiliano Allegri confirms he will be back in management in September with Manchester United heavily linked with the Italian

Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed he will be back in management in September at an event in Paris, which will put Europe’s top clubs on alert.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with the former Juventus manager as the Red Devils are currently in limbo with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The likes of Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also rumoured to be a potential destination for the Italian coach.

However, the 52-year-old stated that he had no contact with the Parisien club and that he was just in the capital of France to promote his new book.

Barcelona were linked as a landing spot for Allegri last summer but the Catalan giants decided to replace Ernesto Valverde with Quique Setien midway through the first half of the season.

A return to Juventus could still be on the cards with former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri not convincing his doubters despite the talent at his disposal with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala.

The Old Lady are in a three-way title fight with Lazio and Inter Milan and currently lead the table by a point with only three points separating the top three teams.

The likely destination for the former AC Milan boss is Manchester United with the Italian admitting that he has been learning English which adds fuel to the rumours.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are languishing in 7th place in the Premier League but do have a chance for Champions League qualification with the Norwegian.

With Manchester City’s two-year Champions League ban yet to be overturned, 5th place could guarantee a spot in Europe’s elite competition.

The Red Devils are only three points away from 4th placed Chelsea who they just beat 2-0 in their last Premier League fixture.

They also have a chance to win the Europa League and drew to Club Brugge 1-1 away from home in the first leg match-up of the Round of 16.

However, with injuries to key players in Marcus Rashford, who could miss the whole season, and Paul Pogba, who has an indefinite return date, the task to qualify for the Champions League is a tough task.

With a lot of fans unhappy with the football under Solskjaer, United could depart with their legendary striker.

Former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is favourite to be the next boss with odds being at 2/5 with Allegri next in line with odds of 5/1 to take over next.
