Rumors suggest that Antonio Conte turns out Real Madrid job to wait for Manchester United


Former Chelsea and juventus boss, Antonio Conte does not want to move to Real Madrid because he wants to takeover at Manchester United should the Red Devils decide to to dump Jose Mourinho.


The news, according to Italian journalist, Govanni Guardala, who claimed that although Real Madrid are tempting the former Juventus boss, he wants a move back to England and this time he wants Manchester United instead.


Real Madrid confirmed yesterday that the club has agreed to terminate the contract of head coach, Julen Lopetegui, after just 14 games in charge of the club and have been making serious plans to bring in a new man.


Lopetegui was temporarily replaced with 42-year-old Real Madrid Castilla manager, Santiago Solari as they keep searching for a top manager to help save their season from complete shambles.


Manchester United boss Mourinho has been tipped to leave the club following their poor start to the new Premier League season by chairman Ed Woodward isn’t too keen on letting the Portuguese tactician leave.


Conte, so far, has emerged as the overwhelming favourite to take over the reins at Real Madrid.


But Guardala claimed that the Italian has instead cooled his interest at taking over because he likes the prospect of managing United.


He said:

“There are many rumours about his future,” Guardala told Sky Italia.

“Real Madrid is tempting him but Manchester United is a team that Antonio Conte really like

“There are players like Paul Pogba, whom he coached at Juventus, or Alexis Sanchez, Herrera and Lukaku, three players he’s always wanted to sign.

“At the moment nothing is decided with Real Madrid.”
