Former Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri, has put Manchester United and Arsenal on red alert, after admitting he wants to coach a team in the Premier League.

The Italian was in charge of Juventus for five years, and won the Scudetto as many times, after also managing AC Milan for a while.

Allegri, has however, been out of management for close to two years, after leaving his role at the Old Lady. However, the tactician has expressed a willingness to return to the job, with England a probable destination.

Speaking earlier this week with The Times, he said, “I would like to experience the Premier League.

“In Italy, I was in Milan for four years. Five years in Juventus. Now I expect (to work again) in Italy, but it is difficult, or in England.

“For me, English football is improving now because there are a lot of foreign trainers. There are more tactics compared to ten years ago. England now is more sophisticated, and more tactical, but is also respecting the tradition of English football.

“It’s a good balance of the spirit of English football and the new quality and new tactical approach of the new coaches.”

Manchester United and Arsenal are possible destinations Allegri could end up if he were to actually come to the Premier League, with the managers of both clubs under some sort of pressure.

However, whether it will happen any time soon remains unclear, seeing as the Manchester United board and executive vice chairman, Ed Woodward, have publicly given their backing to Olé Gunnar Solskjaer on more occasions than one.
