Antonio Conte wo’uld be open to taking over from Ol’e Gunn’ar Solskj’aer at Ma’n Utd with pressure’ intensi’fying following the Liverpool de’feat, but Cristiano Rona’ldo may ha’ve do’ubts.


Anto’nio Co’nte is kee’n on the Manch’ester Un’ited job as pressure mounts on Ole Gu’nnar Solskjaer, according to reports.

The Red De’vils bos’s watched on as his side lo’st 5-0 at home to Liver:stol on Sund’ay with questi’ons bei’ng ask’ed regar’ding his futu’re.



Thus fa’r thou’gh he has be’en unab’le to ma”ke United the sum of their parts and som’e are calling for a ne’w face.

Conte would usually be reluctant to take a new job mi’d-seas’on, but woul’d mak’e an exc’eption for the post in Manchester.

Gar’y Neville claim’ed the for’mer Blu’es boss’ is “not a fit” for his former club, b’ut Sols’kjaer’s future is in seri’ous doubts as United chie’fs weigh up thei’r optio’ns.


Salary demands

If those on the re’d ha’lf of ‘ do decide to make a chan’ge it wo’n’t come cheap.

For star’ters, Sols’kjaer was only handed a new deal earlie”r this year, so axi’ng him will require a pay of’f.


Conte will also be offe’ring little leeway in negoti’ations, with Calciom’ercato reporting he is unlikely to lower his wage demands.

Solskjaer is belie’ved to earn around £7m a ye’ar as United boss.
