Massimiliano Allegri wants to bring two Juventus stars with him to Manchester United if he replaces Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm, according to reports.
The Italian has been linked with the manager’s job at Old Trafford despite Ed Woodward recently giving Solskjaer a vote of confidence.
He has reportedly already held talks with the Old Trafford club and is keen on taking charge before the January transfer window.
United have scored just eight in nine games this season and are in desperate need of a new striker as well as a midfielder who is familiar with the Premier League.
According to Italian publication Tuttosport, Allegri has the solution to these problems and wants to bring Mario Mandzukic and Emre Can with him to United if he gets the top job.
Mandzukic has already been linked with a move to United and has reportedly made a verbal agreement with the Red Devils to sign in January.
Can, meanwhile, would be an interesting transfer given he used to play in the English top-flight for Manchester United’s bitter rivals Liverpool.
The German wants out at Juventus after falling down the pecking order under Maurizio Sarri, who failed to include Can in his initial Champions League squad.
Tuttosport earlier reported that Allegri is “very close” to joining United.
