Following Sunday's 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool at Old Trafford, United board are rumored to be considering sacking Solskjaer this week. Conte, who has been out of job since leaving Inter Milan at the end of their successful 2020-21 season, is currently considered the favorite to take over in Manchester.
However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims that no contact has been made, stating on Twitter: "Since days, there has been no question about Antonio Conte's decision.
He wants the Manchester United job and is willing to accept it. However, as of now, there is no official proposal on the table." Conte is said to want £10 million a year to replace Solskjaer, with the ex-Chelsea and Inter manager willing to deviate from his policy of not taking over a club in the middle of the season.
During his managerial career, the 52-year-old has won four Serie A titles, one Premier League, and one FA Cup, while Solskjaer's United have taken only one point from their last four Premier League games.
