Allegri sets Man Utd deadline

Former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has told Manchester United he will only take the job if it's offered in the next few weeks.

He is currently out of work since leaving Turin at the end of last season and is widely tipped to become United's next manager.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently under intense pressure following an awful start to the season and could be axed should United lose heavily against Liverpool a week on Sunday.

Gazetta Dello Sport says Allegri is interested in the position but has set a deadline on accepting the job as he wants to have as much time as possible to turn things around at the club.

It is reported that he would be unlikely to take the job if he was offered it in December, meaning any approach would have to made in the coming weeks.
