Conte snubs Real Madrid offer, wants to replace Mourinho at Manchester United

Dismissed Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has ignored a move to Real Madrid because he wants to replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

According to Italian journalist, Govanni Guardala, who claimed that although Real are tempting the former Juventus boss, he wants a move to United.

The European champions confirmed on Monday that the club had agreed to terminate the contract of head coach, Julen Lopetegui, after just 14 games in charge.

United boss Jose Mourinho has been tipped to leave the club following their poor start to the new Premier League season, and Madrid are touted as a possible destination.

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

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

“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.”
