Cape Town - Massimiliano Allegri reportedly wants to make two changes to the Manchester United backroom staff, should he take over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Italian boss is unemployed after leaving Juventus at the end of the last campaign but only after he lifted a fifth consecutive Serie A title.
The 52-year-old has been linked with several Premier League clubs since his departure from the Old Lady and the Guardian recently claimed that he is 'learning English' in preparation for a possible job interview at United.
According to widespread reports, Allegri would be on a shortlist of candidates should the Red Devils contemplate replacing under-pressure Solskjaer.
The Red Devils suffered a 1-0 defeat against struggling Newcastle before the international break and their only victory in their last five outings in all competitions was a penalty shoot-out success over League One side Rochdale in the Carabao Cup.
From their opening eight games in the Premier League, United have mustered up just nine-points and are 12th in the table, 15 points behind log leaders Liverpool.
Now, reports are surfacing that Allegri would bring in former United defender Patrice Evra as part of his coaching staff.
Allegri 'has promised the former French left-back he'll include him among his backroom team in the event of an agreement with United.'
However, Allegri still wants Marco Landucci, who was his assistant at Juventus, to become his second in command if he takes the reins at Old Trafford.
United are back in action on Sunday, October 20 as they welcome rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford.
The Reds are unbeaten and will be looking to stretch their lead at the summit of the Premiership table.
Kick-off is at 17:30.
