Antonio Conte is holding out for Manchester United’s managerial position despite interest from Serie A clubs.

The former Chelsea manager has been linked with the likes of Roma, Inter, and Juventus, however, Gazzetta dello Sport claims he has his eye on the Manchester United job.

United’s form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dipped splendidly of late, having lost seven of their previous ten matches, which also involved elimination from the Champions League and a potential knockout blow from the Premier League top 4 race.

The tactics deployed by Solskjaer of late, coupled with the poor run of results, has subsequently led some fans to question the Norwegian tactician’s appointment on a full-time basis.

If United decide to sack Solskjaer, Conte wants to be in a position to take over at Old Trafford and therefore he is prepared to hold out over making a decision over his next club.

For now, the United hierarchy are looking to make a massive change to the way the club functions. Apart from the huge overhaul of players in their roster which is set to occur in the summer transfer window, the Mancunian giants will also see a change in personnel elsewhere in their hierarchy.

Over the past few seasons, there has been a visible disconnect between the desires of managers and what Ed Woodward wished to do at the club.

In order to amend this, the club has been long mulling over the appointment of a sporting director.
