The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager has been linked with a move to become the next Manchester United manager in the summer and the club is reportedly in talks with the Portuguese to take over from Louis van Gaal.

Van Gaal has come under increasing pressure this season, with United languishing in fifth and struggling to entertain the Old Trafford faithful.

Allegri's style has been compared to that of his Italian compatriot Carlo Ancelotti, who won a Premier League and FA Cup double at Chelsea and remains hugely popular at the club.

"I'm deeply grateful for the reception from the Chelsea fans and their applause when I was substituted". I think it's my natural habitat.

"Manchester United is that kind of club".

It is thought that the Special One will earn £15million-a-year - a wage only bettered by the reported £19million that will be earned by Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

United are six points behind fourth-placed City in the Premier League table and Van Gaal is unlikely to survive should the club fail to qualify for next season's Champions League, having failed to get out of the group stages of the competition this term.

What do you think Mourinho going to Man United would mean to Arsenal? Manchester United don't want that long time in the wilderness of not really winning or being successful and not challenging for titles. At Inter Milan, he also had success against him.

Obviously, they won’t be able to land ALL of those players, even with £300m to spend, but it gives you an idea of the level of players Mourinho will be targeting if/when he's installed as United boss this summer. Let us know in the comments section below.
