Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly linked with a move to Manchester United as per the report in British outlet Mirror

The pressure is building on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following a disappointing start to the season. The Red Devils have struggled to showcase consistency so far this campaign and after suffering four defeats in seven games in all competitions, the Old Trafford faithful are starting to raise their voices for a managerial change. 

Despite not having to face any big boys in the Premier League, Solskjaer’s side are already five points behind the league leader Chelsea. The situation is not promising either in the Champions League as the Red Devils are currently sitting third in their subsequent group. 

According to the report, Antonio Conte is currently unemployed and is looking for a new challenge, so, the Italian manager could be an option for Manchester United if they were to sack the Norwegian anytime soon. 

However, Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano has already reported that the record Premier League champions are still backing Solskjaer despite the recent downfall and hoping that this situation will be changed in the immediate future. 

Will Antonio Conte be the right option for Manchester United? 

Conte has shown his managerial prowess by winning the league title wherever he has managed. So, bringing in a tactician of that calibre could be a tempting prospect for the club hierarchy.

However, the former Inter Milan manager is a demanding coach who will want enough financial backing to reach his goal. Having spent over £100m this summer, the Red Devils might not be keen on spending any more during this pandemic. So, the Italian might not be a suitable candidate for United. 

Bringing Zinedine Zidane could be a better choice for Manchester United. The Frenchman has a very calm nature and might be happy to work with the current squad. The former Real Madrid manager plays a certain brand of football that will please the fans and he also has the expertise to win big prizes which is the most important to carry this team to the next step.
