Former Chelsea manaher Antonio Conte is reportedly open to discussing taking over at Manchester United should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be sacked by the club.
Speculation has been rife in England that Solskjaer will be fired following Sunday’s 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool. The result left United eight points behind log leaders Chelsea.
According to the The Guardian United are thought to be seriously considering Solskjær’s future after taking one point from their past four Premier League games.
“The 48-year-old is considered tactically underwhelming, while being well-liked by the squad and within the wider club,” reported the newspaper.
Conte is said to be open to taking over the Man United job should it be available.
Conte has been out of work since leaving Inter Milan at the end of last season, having guided them to their first title in eleven years in the 2020-21 Serie A season.
Other coaches linked with the United job are Zinedine Zidane, Erik Ten Hag, Brandon Rodgers, Luis Enrique, Rafael Benitez and Massimiliano Allegri.
