Massimiliano Allegri has made his priority to return to coaching in Italy, a report claims, amid links with the AC Milan head coach job.
Despite having only taken the job in October, Stefano Pioli’s reign as Milan boss is already under severe threat. He was appointment to replace Marco Giampaolo after seven games of the current season, and although performances have improved on the whole results have not as he has won just eight of his first 18 games in charge.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport reports (via MilanNews.it), Max Allegri is a name that continues to be linked with Milan in what could be a reunion between the Italian, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva – three key pillars of the Scudetto season nine years ago.
The paper adds that despite having received several offers from abroad (all refused for family reasons), Allegri’s priority is to train again in Italy. Milan would not mind bringing him back, but it will take a great project to convince him to return, the report adds.
Last month, the Daily Mail claimed that the 52-year-old was ‘content to delay an immediate return to management’ after leaving Juventus – where he had won five straight Scudetti – with Manchester United ‘top of his wishlist’ in terms of a next job.
