Statements of Woodward appear to pull Man Utd out of the race for Milan target Allegri

By Oliver Fisher -

Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward has insisted that Manchester United are committed to a long-term project with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in charge.

Allegri has been out of work since the end of last season when he left Juventus after five years in charge, and speculation is rife about where he could end up next.

A number of different outlets are reporting that the 52-year-old could end up in charge of Milan six years after leaving, with the Rossoneri currently highly unlikely to reach the top four this season which has put Stefano Pioli’s future under serious doubt.

However, he is also being linked with a number of other big European clubs, with Manchester United and PSG the two most concrete alternatives at present it appears.

However, Ed Woodward now appears to have put any speculation regarding United’s interest in Allegri to bed, as he told Sky Sports that the plan is to proceed with current boss Solskjaer.

“We are pushing for a strong finish in the Premier League, the Europa League and the FA Cup as we enter the final third of the season,” he said.

“We have continued to make progress on our squad rebuild, with many changes in terms of players that we have brought in and players that have come through our academy; the foundation for delivering the long-term success that we are all working towards is in place as we implement our plan and our footballing vision with Ole.”
