As per a report from the Daily Mail, Massimiliano Allegri wants Patrice Evra to join his staff, if appointed new Manchester United boss.
52-year-old Italian tactician Allegri spent the last 5 years in charge of Serie A powerhouse Juventus.
Despite his initial appointment having been met with derision on the part of the Bianconeri faithful, Allegri subsequently went on to enjoy a hugely-successful stint at the helm in Turin.
The former AC Milan boss’ tactical, pragmatic style saw him guide Juve to 4 consecutive domestic doubles between 2014 and 2018, with Allegri having added a 5th-straight Serie A crown last season.
In addition, the Old Lady of Italian football reached a pair of Champions League finals under Allegri.
However, a disappointing European campaign in 2018-19, which saw his side ousted by Ajax in the competition’s quarter-finals, coupled with an increasingly-negative style of football, saw pressure begin to mount on the Juve boss.
As such, amid widespread speculation, it was confirmed that Allegri had been relieved of his duties back in May.
Allegri and Evra to link up at Old Trafford?
The Italian tactician has since remained out of the managerial scene, but recent reports have tipped Allegri for one position in particular.
Amid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s widely-publicised struggles at Manchester United, the Old Trafford hierarchy are said to be considering Allegri as the Norwegian’s replacement.
The Guardian recently even went as far as to state that the former AC Milan manager is already learning English.

And, as per the aforementioned update from the Daily Mail this evening, Allegri is now eyeing up potential additions to his backroom staff, should he be handed the reins at United.
One man central to these plans, meanwhile, is Patrice Evra.
Allegri and Evra previously won two domestic doubles together with Italian giants Juventus.
And the latter’s wealth of experience, both of English football and Manchester United in particular, means he would prove a valuable addition to Allegri’s ranks, should he be chosen as the man to lead the Red Devils forward into a new era.
