Antonio Conte touted for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United job

Antonio Conte could be open to a sensational return to the Premier League, according to reports.

The Italian, who took Chelsea to the Premier League title in 2017, has been out of work since leaving Inter Milan at the end of last season.

Conte won the Italian giants their first Serie A title in 11 years but then departed after disagreeing with club bosses.

He was then interviewed for the position as head coach of Tottenham over the summer, only for those talks to break down.

It is now being said that he would be open to taking the managerial role at Manchester United if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was to be sacked.

However, it is not thought he would be interested in replacing Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.

Sky Sports reporter Gianluca Di Marzio said: “He would only accept a winning project. So I don’t think he would accept Arsenal and that is why he said no to Tottenham.

“I think he would only accept if say Manchester United called.”
