​Former ​Juventus boss Antonio Conte and general manager Giuseppe Marotta are reportedly being linked with a move to ​Manchester United to take over the roles of Jose Mourinho and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward respectively.


According to ​Football Italia, Marotta who recently left Juventus after a highly successful spell with them is not likely to be short of job offers with report claiming that he could be offered the role currently occupied by Woodward at Old Trafford.


Mourinho's position at the club too has come under threat following a string of poor results to add to his rift with midfielder Paul Pogba, with it being suggested that former ​Chelsea boss Conte could take over from him if they decide to sack the Portugese gaffer.




Marotta and Conte came together when the Italian club were struggling and since led them to three consecutive Serie A titles which makes the prospect of the duo working together a mouth watering prospect for the Red Devils.


While the above are just reports, it is understood that the club hierarchy are backing Mourinho for the time being as they believe that he can sort out the mess at present and is the right man to take them forward.


In terms of finance, Woodward has been key in United's brand growing across the globe so it will be interesting to see how this situation pans out in the future.
