Manchester United have drawn up a two-man managerial shortlist in their search to replace Jose Mourinho, according to the Sunday Express.
There’s huge doubts surrounding the Portuguese’s future at Old Trafford following a poor start to the season.
After a spectacular 3-2 comeback win against Newcastle and a 2-2 draw at Chelsea, the 55-year-old seems have bided himself more time.
However, it’s still expected that the United hierarchy will make a change in the summer and they’ve now drawn up a two-man wishlist to kick-start that process.
Despite speculation Zinedine Zidane was their top target, it’s now being reported that the Red Devils have switched their attention to ex-Chelsea chief Antonio Conte and Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri.
The former left Stamford Bridge last summer after guiding the Blues to the Premier League and FA Cup in his two years at Stamford Bridge.
However, there is a danger that the record 20-time champions of England may miss out on the Italian as Real Madrid and AC Milan, who are both interested, weigh up the future of their respective under-pressure bosses Julen Lopetegui and Gennaro Gattuso.
Meanwhile, fellow Italian, Allegri, whose current deal runs until 2020, has won four Serie A and Coppa Italia titles in a row since replacing Conte at Juve in 2014.
However, it’s thought he will not consider a new challenge away from the Turin outfit until he’s guided them to Champions League glory after coming close by reaching the final in both 2015 and 2017.
