Massimiliano Allegri is in the mix to take over at Manchester United, but wants a big transfer budget in January, according to Tuttosport.
United have started the season poorly and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure to turn things around quickly.
Last weekend, the Red Devils were defeated 2-0 by West Ham and now sit in eighth place.
Allegri is currently without a club after leaving Juventus at the end of last season, following five years in charge of the Turin-based giants.
And he has named him as a possible replacement for Solskjaer, should the United board decide to pull the trigger.
However, Allegri would demand a big purse, to shake up the playing squad in the winter window.
