Antonio Conte is apparently waiting by the phone, hoping a certain club from Manchester makes a phone call…

The crows are starting to circle around Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely under more pressure than ever before. A few poor results at Manchester United is all it tends to take, though our start to the season has been borderline shocking.

Even in victory, Manchester United haven’t looked convincing. With this squad, with this team, the Red Devils are striving for more. Hence why fans are now calling for Solskjaer’s head.

Well, it seems as though one former Premier League winner is ‘waiting on a call from Manchester United’, as title-winner Antonio Conte wants the Reds job over Newcastle United (obviously…).

“Antonio Conte has refused a pharaonic offer from Newcastle. The reason? He is waiting for a call from Manchester United,” Santini was quoted as saying by Area Napoli per Sport Witness.

It goes without saying, even with Newcastle United’s embarrassment of riches, the Old Trafford hot-seat is obviously still the bigger job. Conte will probably be thinking he can win titles with this side given the strength-in-depth.

From Cristiano Ronaldo to Raphael Varane, Solskjaer deserves credit for the great work he’s done in assembling this squad. However, the general feeling around the place is that he’s taken United as far as he can.

Sadly, the results to start this term haven’t been good enough and there’s only so long the fans will remain patient. Is Conte the answer? For me, it’s an overwhelming no.

If the Italian is genuinely the answer, then I’m even more worried. His football is boring, the 5-3-2 just invites pressure and it’s not something our fans would enjoy watching every single week. He’d be a bit like the Jose Mourinho hire – great if he’s winning but awful if we’re struggling. I’m not sure that’s a path we can afford to go down right now.

Would Antonio Conte be a good choice for Man United’s next manager? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
