But Juve director Fabio Paratici has put paid to any hopes United had of approaching the Italian coach, whilst also claiming that star forward Paulo Dybala will also not be leaving this summer.
“I believe he will stay,” Paratici told La Gazzetta dello Sport when asked about Allegri. “I really don’t see a better manager.”
Meanwhile, Argentina star Dybala has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, but Paratici says he is also staying in Serie A.
“Dybala is staying. Only people who want to go will leave Juve.
“I repeat, it is difficult to find better players than those we already have,” added Paratici.
Sky Sports claim the Norwegian side have allowed the former United forward to make a temporary return to Old Trafford for an initial £1.8m and that it would cost an additional £7.2m should United chiefs decide to keep Solskjaer beyond the end of the current campaign.
Allegri took over as Juventus boss in 2014 following the departure of Antonio Conte and has won four successive Serie A and Coppa Italia doubles and reached the Champions League final on two occasions.
