Antonio Conte is interested in becoming the next Manchester United manager but he does have reservations about potentially replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to the MEN.
The local newspaper reports that Conte would be unwilling to accept signings that would be “foisted onto him” by the club’s board. He believes that the focus of some of the Red Devils’ recruitment in recent years has been to bring in players based on how marketable they are.
That strategy had seemingly been ditched but the shock arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of August has led to more questions about their transfer policy that Conte would want answers to.
The former Chelsea head coach’s other major concern is related to the general direction of the club. The Italian has become notorious for butting heads with directors and he doesn’t want the same situation occurring at Old Trafford.
With CEO Ed Woodward leaving the club soon and John Murtough having taken on the role of football director, the lack of certainty about the future may also put off Conte.
