Antonio Conte is “ready to talk” to Manchester United should they decide to begin the search for a new manager, a source close to the Italian has told Express Sport. Talks regarding the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford are understood to have taken place at boardroom level on Monday afternoon in the aftermath of Sunday’s humiliating 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.
There are now huge doubts as to whether Solskjaer will be in charge of this weekend’s trip to Tottenham given the alarming nature of his side’s calamitous display as they were ruthlessly put to the sword by their bitter rivals.
Furthermore, while recent results – albeit poor – have not yet made Solskjaer’s position untenable, his future has now been placed under immediate threat following an accumulation of underwhelming and concerning performances, which derive from the squad’s lack of cohesion on the field.
The United hierarchy are expected to continue carefully discussing their next move but former Chelsea boss Conte, has now made it known he’d be ready to consider the position.
