Massimiliano Allgeri would want Patrice Erva to join him on his backroom staff at Manchester United if he is appointed manager.

Evra played for the English giants between 2006-2014 – winning five Premier League titles and one Champions League – and a return to Old Trafford would prove a hugely popular decision among fans.

Allegri, who has also attracted interest from Tottenham, is being courted as a future manager at United after a disappointing start to the season, which sees them sit 12th in the Premier League.

Evra has often expressed his desire to return to Old Trafford to help the club return to the glory days after losing their dominant title within England.

The Italian boss – currently out of a job after stepping down as Juventus boss at thew end of last season – has promised the former French left-back to include him among his backroom team in the event of an agreement with United.

Allegri and Evraa won two Serie A titles together at Juventus and the pair enjoyed a very strong relationship during their time in Turin. 

Evra would be the perfect understudy for Allegri due to his wealth of knowledge of both English football and United in particular. 

With Evra’s experience in Manchester and Allegri’s pragmatism, United would be in safe hands in their bid to cut the gap between them and Europe’s top clubs at present.

Allegri would continue to have his deputy, Marco Landucci, beside him at Old Trafford despite the involvement of Evra.

Evra has hinted at a possible future link up with Allegri just recently, posting a picture alongside him while watching Tottenham’s humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League. 

The 38-year-old tweeted: ‘So great to watch a match with you guys. I love the knowledge we share together and the advice and I know the future is bright for all of us.’

Allegri – who is not looking for another job in Italy due to his connection with Juventus – has his eyes firmly set on a move to England, which was recently confirmed by Gianluigi Buffon’s agent, Silvano Martina.
