Former Juventus boss Max Allegri has been linked with a move to Manchester United ever since leaving the Bianconeri in 2019.

Allegri, 52, left Turin last year after winning Serie A five times in succession, also guiding the Old Lady to four Coppa Italia titles and two Champions League finals.

Despite being out of work at the moment, the Italian remains one of Europe’s premier managers.

This term he has been linked with a number of roles that have become available – including the Arsenal job after Unai Emery was sacked last November.

United have long been mooted as another potential destination, particularly during the more difficult spells of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tenure.

Solskjaer's side have stepped up their performances since signing Bruno Fernandes in the January window and were on the charge for a Champions League place before the coronavirus outbreak led to football being suspended.

And now, Allegri's agent, Giovanni Branchini has spoken on fresh rumours that his client could make Old Trafford home in the future.

However, Branchini emphasised that no clubs are thinking about managerial changes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving Allegri in a state of stasis.

“To date, nobody is thinking about their coach of next year,” he told Italian outlet Calciomercato.

“Everyone thinks of this season, we were therefore focused on this season. Max has enjoyed a peaceful year, he needed it.

“He is recharged and lives the reality that we are all living, we will see how things will go.

"Making assumptions today would be making fun of people.”

Allegri, who won the scudetto with AC Milan in 2010-11, is also linked with a number of other European giants and he could be in line for his first managerial role outside of Italy.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly monitoring the situation, while a return to Juventus is another option.

Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is currently in charge at the Allianz Stadium but Juventus’ search for a ninth consecutive Serie A title is under threat by Lazio, who trail them by only one point.
