Antonio Conte would make key change at Man Utd if he replaced Solskjaer

Antonio Conte would make a major reshuffle to Manchester United if he were to be appointed as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's replacement at Old Trafford.

Following a record-breaking 5-0 hammering at home to Liverpool, there is intense pressure on the Norwegian boss to be sacked.

The United hierarchy are not resting on their laurels and are drawing up a shortlist over who could replace Solskjaer if results do not improve.

Conte is one man being considered by the board. Reports state he is ready to accept the role if the Red Devils decide to wield the axe.

The 52-year-old has been out of work since leaving Inter Milan at the end of last season having led the club to a first league title since 2010.

Several clubs have approached Conte following his departure, most notably Tottenham, but he's rejected every advance so far.

The former Chelsea boss is yet to find a club that matches his ambition.

But Conte is yet to receive a firm offer from Manchester United with reports he would jump at the chance to manage one of Europe's biggest clubs.

However, the Italian would be sure to make one major change to United's playing style if he were appointed as Solskjaer's successor.

No longer would a leaky backline be of concern to the Old Trafford faithful.

Conte is a huge advocaat for a five-man defence having built title-winning sides in Italy and England on strong foundations with three central defenders and two wing-backs.

He led Chelsea to Premier League glory utilising a 3-4-3 formation with the Blues recording a 13-match winning streak on their way to the title.

Back on home soil, Conte switched to a 3-5-2 at Inter Milan to make to most of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez with similar success.
