Antonio Conte is reportedly keen on becoming the next Manchester United manager if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is dismissed from his duties as per the report in the Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport

Following a 5-0 defeat against Liverpool, the future of Solskjaer is in doubt as the fans are desperate for a managerial change, but the club hierarchy have decided to give the Norwegian another chance to prove his worth. 

According to the report, Conte is eager to join Manchester United as the Italian believes that he can make the Red Devils a title contender with the squad the Old Trafford outfit already have at the moment. 

The report further claims that the former Inter manager is set to turn down offers from Newcastle United as Manchester United job is more appealing for him and wants to work with the talents like Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane, Alex Telles, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial, Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.

Conte waiting in the wings as pressure is building on Manchester United board to sack Solskjaer:

Following Barcelona’s decision to sack Ronald Koeman after the defeat against Rayo Vallecano, the pressure is high on the Manchester United board to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

Alongside fans, few journalists have also criticised the Red Devils’ decision to continue with the Norwegian manager, despite the recent poor performances. 

The recent reports were claiming that the Manchester United board have given Solskjaer time due to the fact that they have identified Mauricio Pochettino as their number one target to replace the Norwegian and want to understand the availability of the Argentine, given the former Tottenham boss is currently PSG manager. 

However, with Conte – a proven winner – willing to become the next Manchester United manager, it would be a better decision to appoint the Italian. Pochettino hasn’t had great success during his managerial career and it will be a risk to appoint the Argentine with the aim to win titles.
