Despite Antonio Conte being widely tipped as the favourite to be Manchester United's next manager, a new report seems to have detailed what the English giants really think of him.
According to Manchester Evening News, the 20-time English champions are uncertain about replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Conte should the Norwegian lose his job in the coming weeks.
The publication went as far as to say that some high-ranking figures at United are "not keen" on the Italian as they doubt he is suitable to the club.
While the 52-year-old is said to be willing to accept an offer from the Red Devils if one arrives, there has reportedly not been any contact between the ex-Inter Milan boss and club at this point.
Questions over Solskjaer's job security have been raised in recent weeks, with United's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League this past Sunday sounding more alarm bells due to the team's apparent lack of cohesion and shape.
Here are the seven highest-paid managers in England's top division:
The Red Devils were easily carved open by Jurgen Klopp's Reds, whose five goals came before the 50th minute, leading to many pundits and supporters alike feeling that the 48-year-old Norwegian has taken United as far as he can.
Solskjaer, the scorer of the club's famous UEFA Champions League final-winning goal against Bayern Munich in 1999, came in on an interim basis following Jose Mourinho's sacking in December 2018, before being handed the position permanently three months later.
Regarding Conte, some appear concerned about the Italian's record of having been in his last three positions – Italy, Chelsea and Inter Milan – for no longer than two years, which could be due to the intensity of his coaching style.
He is, however, a proven winner who has won nine titles in his managerial career to date, including the 2016/17 EPL title with the Blues.
