Some Manchester United fans fear Tottenham Hotspur will beat them to Massimiliano Allegri.
Allegri has already been linked with a move to Tottenham and is said to have eyes on the Manchester United manager's job.
But according to The Guardian, the Italian, who is taking a sabbatical after leaving Juventus at the end of last season, was at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday to watch Spurs' 7-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.
That result has increased speculation that Mauricio Pochettino could leave his position as Tottenham head coach.
And this is what those of a Manchester United persuasion, some of whom have become disillusioned under their boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, are saying on Twitter today...
Allegri to Spurs— Graham Manders (@G_Manders) October 1, 2019
I only fear due to this result Allegri May end up at Spurs instead of United— Anubhav Tiku (@tikuanubhav) October 1, 2019
Spurs are going to ruin United's search for a new manager when the inevitable happens, aren't they? I wanted Allegri in...— Rhys Edwards (@rhyse) October 1, 2019
Smh if Allegri to Spurs and Poch to Real happens i’ll be so pissed. And we end up keeping the biggest idiot of them all— LUHG (@skksdjdbdbbd) October 1, 2019
Spurs will get Allegri and we'll still be giving Ole time— bonita (@Mancputaa) October 1, 2019
Over the next fortnight, expect Spurs, Arsenal and Real to sound out José and Allegri. Meanwhile thick Ed will persist with Solskjaer all the way to a bottom half finish.— The WhoGuru (@BalinHenst) October 1, 2019
Ole has until Christmas to improve the performances on the pitch. I am not referring to the results. I am referring to the way we set up and attack in games. If I am not satisfied by then, it's Allegri in. No Poch because if he gets sacked, Spurs will go for Allegri! #MUFC #GGMU— Nicholas (@noww2229) October 2, 2019
Allegri would be fantastic for Spurs tbh.— Catoca (@Demilade_OG) October 1, 2019
Allegri learned his trade in Italian football's lower leagues before spells at Cagliari, AC Milan and Juventus - winning a combined tally of six Serie A titles.
But the 52-year-old is now said to be learning English as he weighs up his next move.
Manchester United, Tottenham or neither - which club would be the best fit for Allegri?
