Tottenham Head Coach Antonio Conte harbours ambitions of managing Manchester United, according to La Repubblica.
The newspaper has raised the prospect of the former Chelsea manager moving to Old Trafford after the Italian raised questions about his own future following Spurs’s defeat Burnley on Wednesday night.
It is reported that Conte “dreams of United” and sees the job as a “personal challenge” that he wants to “try before giving up coaching.”
The Manchester club is not the only team in the running for the 52-year-old, though, with La Repubblica claiming that Paris Saint-Germain would also be interested if they fail to appoint Zinedine Zidane or Didier Deschamps this summer.
Conte has tried to dampen down speculation about his future at a press conference yesterday, stating he is keen to stay at Tottenham following talks with chairman Daniel Levy:
“I spoke to Daniel Levy. Our chairman knows very well that I’m here to help the club in every moment. I will do that until the end. He shows me great consideration every day and for this reason, I’m committed for this club much more because I know the consideration for me is very high.”
Whether Conte will jump ship at the end of the season, we shall have to wait and see. He seems to be eyeing the United job but the Red Devils may be considering other options.
