Manchester United have reportedly started the first contacts with the management of Antonio Conte as they consider a replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
With Antonio Conte out of work after he left Inter Milan this summer, despite steering them to the Serie A title, the man who lifted the Premier League with Chelsea is unsurprisingly linked with the Red Devils.
Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla now reports that the Manchester outfit have made first contacts with the representatives of Conte, who will demand ‘certainties’ before taking over at Old Trafford.
However, Pedulla adds that there are currently no talks with ex-Real Madrid boss and icon Zinedine Zidane.
Solskjaer’s position is under serious question after the 5-0 defeat to heated rivals Liverpool, as the Guardian note that managing director Richard Arnold has cleared his schedule for talks with the Glazers.
Manchester United have lost three of their last four Premier League ties, with their only point in that run coming via a draw with Everton and they’ve also looked very sloppy in the Champions League, despite their two wins.
