Manchester United, Monaco both eyeing up new manager?

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Juventus coach Antonio Conte's situation in Turin as a contingency incase David Moyes is unable to convince in the long-term at Old Trafford, according to Italian publication Tuttosport.

United boss Moyes has endured a difficult star to life in the United hotseat, losing five Premier League games to slip 10 points behind leaders Arsenal.

That indifferent form has reportedly prompted United to consider Conte as a potential replacement, if the Juve tactician is open to the challenge of coaching in England.

Conte has enjoyed a hugely successful spell as Juve supremo, a club he made more than 400 appearances for during a 13-year playing career.

Juve's two consecutive Serie A titles have not been enough to dampen speculation over his future though, particularly following last week's surprise Champions League exit in the group stages, with the Bianconeri forced to settle for a Europe League place.

Persistent rumours that Conte is unhappy at being unable to take Juve further in Europe have led both Monaco and United to make their interest in his services known, if reports in the Italian media are to be believed.

Monaco are favourites to bring in Conte if they decide that Claudio Ranieri will be unable to keep the likes of Radamel Falcao unhappy, particularly given their sizeable budget and scope for improvement.

Conte's current contract with Juve expires in 2015, although there has been no public indication that either party has plans to extend that deal at this stage.
