Huge Manchester United Antonio Conte news emerges
Rumors of Antonio Conte at Manchester United gathered pace after the club’s 5-0 loss to Liverpool at Old Trafford. The Italian is one of the best managers in world football and is currently without a club having left Inter Milan this summer. So, it is not difficult to see why the bonds emerged between the club and the manager.
For now, Solskjaer remains Manchester United manager, although it has been suggested that the club are considering the Norwegian’s future at Old Trafford after the Red Devils’ disappointing start to the campaign despite Cristiano Ronaldo signing Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Tom Heaton over the summer.
It will be interesting to see where things go from here, but there seems to be huge news regarding a potential Conte appointment in the event that Solskjaer is sacked.
As reported by Alfredo Pedulla (via Football Italia), Manchester United have made initial contact with Conte’s management but both sides remain wary.

There is more news on this as it looks like there isn’t an official proposal on the table yet, but Conte seems to want the job. As tweeted by Fabrizio Romano:
There is no doubt that someone like Conte could turn out to be a great date for Manchester United. He joined clubs in the past that weren’t well placed and guided them to massive success in no time.
Of course, it will all depend on what the club decide to do regarding Solskjaer’s future at Old Trafford. No doubt Manchester United has come a long way since his arrival but is he still the right person for the job?
