EPL: Conte ‘interested’ in replacing Solskjaer as Man Utd manager


Former Inter Milan and Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, is reportedly interested in becoming the next manager of Manchester United.

Conte has been out of work since he left the San Siro after winning the Serie A at Inter.

Before his two-season stint with Inter, the Italian led Chelsea to the Premier League title and FA Cup during a successful stint at Stamford Bridge.

A mixed start to the campaign has raised questions of whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, now into his third full season, is capable of winning silverware as United boss.

Journalist Duncan Castles claims Zinedine Zidane, who left Real Madrid at the end of last season, is also in the running for the United job.

“Conte’s position, I’m told, is that he is interested in the Manchester United job but not without restrictions.

“Antonio Conte, when he chooses his next club, wants a club where he can win the Champions League.

“He wants to demonstrate, he’s wanted to do it for a long time, that he is one of the very best coaches in world football. To do that he knows he has to win the Champions League.

“So Manchester United are interesting because of the squad they’ve got, because of their status and because of the resource that is behind them,” Castles told Reach’s The Transfer Window podcast.
