Manchester United, Juventus

Antonio Conte has now emerged as a dark horse in the quest to find a new manager for Manchester United after being sounded out by club chairman Ed Woodward.

The 44-year-old Conte is currently leading Juventus to their 3rd successive Italian title since taking over at the club in 2011.

Sources close to the Italian are saying that he is also taking English lessons which only add to the speculation.

Other leading candidates for the job are Carlo Ancelotti, Diego Simeone and current favourite Dutchman Louis van Gaal.
