As you well know, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in a very difficult situation right now at Manchester United, having recently lost 5-0 to Liverpool at Anfield.
It wasn’t just that result that put him under pressure, but it really didn’t help, and now the European media is falling over themselves to try and predict who will replace him.
The main two names are Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane, although the reports on the latter suggest he isn’t all that keen on the job.
The Italian, however, would be, and Corriere della Sera state he would be the ‘right solution’ for the club, and would be ready to ‘make an exception’ to his rule of not taking over teams midway through the season.
In fact, Inter Live believe he ‘could arrive’ in Manchester, ‘but only under certain conditions’, with one of these being the ‘purchase of a loyal player from Inter as early as January’.
That’s reportedly Stefan De Vrij, with it stated that ‘on the table, there is a possible offer of €30-32m’ for the Dutch centre-back, but the Serie A side wouldn’t want to ‘deprive’ themselves of him midway through the season.
This is therefore seen as an ‘almost impossible deal’ to pull off in the coming months, and the fact he’s also represented by Mino Raiola doesn’t play in Manchester United’s favour right now, what with Paul Pogba seemingly running down his contract at Old Trafford.
