Former Juventus boss Max Allegri ‘agrees deal with English club’ after being previously linked with Manchester United according to reports emerging this week.
It is also understood that he will turn down any approach from his former clubs AC Milan and Juve who are said to want to bring him back.
He stood down as head coach of the Serie A giants last summer having guided them to five consecutive league titles.
Now he wants to test himself by moving to another league with Corriere dello Sport claiming the 52-year-old already has an agreement in place with a club in England.
Which club that is remains unclear, but as mentioned, he has been linked with most of those in the Premier League big six, including Man Utd, Arsenal, Man City and Tottenham (before appointing Mourinho).
He has continued to pick up a salary from Juventus and has maintained his stance that he will not accept any job until next season, therefore speculation will eventually start to cool down.
United have maintained that current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be given time to mould his side, but inconsistent performances has taken them to 8th place in the Premier League table and could potentially miss out of a European place.
Manchester City is also said to be another more likely destination for Allegri with Pep Guardiola under increasing pressure, especially now that he’s been touted as a managerial target for Juventus.

Call me crazy but I feel like it could be Chelsea with their obsession with Italian managers
