Conte to replace Solskjaer?

Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has emerged as the standout candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.

The Red Devils have been in a poor run of form, and they have won just one of the previous five matches across all competitions.

The hierarchy have no plans of sacking Solskjaer, but their stance could change if the club continue to struggle with their results.

According to The Mirror, Conte is the leading candidate for the United hot seat if Solskjaer is shown the exit door in the near future.

Conte was offered the Tottenham Hotspur job earlier this summer, but he snubbed them to pursue a better vacancy.

The Italian considers United as a suitable club for him as he will have the financial backing to forge a title-winning side.

United have a tough schedule going ahead with Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City to face in the league.

A few more winless games could pave the way for Solskjaer's dismissal.
