Former Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, is interested in taking charge of Manchester United at the end of the season, only on a permanent basis, the UK Sun reports.
The Red Devils sacked Jose Mourinho on Tuesday and immediately began looking around for an interim manager, a role Conte is not keen on.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was eventually put in charge for the remainder of the campaign.
United will now conduct a search for a permanent boss, but the club view Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino as their “ideal” candidate.
Pochettino, though, is in two minds about leaving Spurs and United will need a decision before the season finishes, in order to ensure their man is in place in time.
Conte left Chelsea at the end of last season after the Blues beat United 1-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
The Italian guided Chelsea to the Premier League title during his first season in charge and Conte is still dividing his time between London and his homeland, Italy.
Conte also turned down the chance to take charge of Real Madrid on a temporary basis, following Julen Lopetegui’s sack.
