Antonio Conte has reportedly expressed an interest in managing Manchester United should the opportunity arise.
The 52-year-old is currently unemployed after leaving Serie A giants Inter after leading them to their first championship in 11 years.
Conte has top management experience in the Premier League after taking charge of Chelsea in 2016 and winning the title in his first campaign, while at the same time setting a new record for most wins in a season.

Now, Sky Sports reporter Gianluca Di Marzio has said Conte would be interested in the Red Devils if they knocked.
However, he would turn down an offer from Arsenal, whose shares have fallen significantly in recent years, with Di Marzio saying Conte had similar reasons for rejecting Tottenham.
Spurs approached Conte this summer as one of several candidates to replace caretaker Ryan Mason, but the Italian turned down their offer.
“He would only accept a winning project,” said di Marzio. “So I don’t think he would accept Arsenal and that’s why he said no to Tottenham.
An approach for Conte would depend on the sacking of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer . by United
“I think he would only accept it if, for example, Manchester United called.”
Of course, any approach by Conte to Old Trafford would depend on the club sacking current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian has just presided over his seventh defeat in 11 Champions League games as United leader after losing 2-1 to Young Boys on Wednesday.
