Antonio Conte open to becoming the manager of Manchester United

Conte explains why Inter signed Alexis Sanchez

The Italian gaffer is open to managing the Red Devils than fellow Premier League outfit Arsenal.

Antonio Conte is currently without a job after quitting his managerial duties at Inter Milan in the summer.

The Italian gaffer led the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title in a decade last season, breaking the dominance of Juventus in the process.

However, Conte relinquished his job after he had reportedly become unhappy with Inter’s financial difficulties – he was not allowed to spend much in the transfer market.

Conte was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham as a replacement for Jose Mourinho in the summer window however the talks broke down after Spurs failed to meet his demands.

Even in the recent weeks, there have been rumours linking Conte with Arsenal, whose current manager Mikel Arteta is apparently fighting to keep his place.

According to new reports, the Italian boss prefers becoming the manager of Manchester United to the Gunners.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done an impressive job since taking over at Old Trafford however the trophy drought under his reign turns out to be a huge concern.

The pressure to win titles has increased for Solskjaer after United’s blockbuster transfer window in which they managed to add the likes of Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Norwegian has been put under scrutiny following the Red Devils’ disappointing defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Pundits like Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes have warned Solskjaer that he could be axed if he fails to deliver any major trophies this season.

Conte’s last spell in the Premier League was at Chelsea, who he led to a Premier League title and a FA Cup.
