As to be expected, a number of Red Devils supporters have been reacting to the news on social media.
Spurs parted ways with Nuno Espirito Santo on Monday less than 48 hours after United ran out 3-0 winners in north London. They’ve quickly moved on from that result to target Conte, who was open to moving to Old Trafford at the end of October following United’s 5-0 defeat to rivals Liverpool.
However, United have stuck with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but it seems as if the Italian will get his return to England with Tottenham.
Konur claimed that a deal had been reached on Monday morning, which was shared by @UnitedStandMUFC. Reliable reporters Fabrizio Romano and Matt Law have even gone as far as to say that a deal is now done for the 52-year-old to take over at Tottenham.
Did you want Conte at Old Trafford?
No, happy with Ole!
United fans react
Here is what these United supporters had to say in reply, with many not happy about missing out on a five-time league title winner in Conte and a few urging supporters to protest once again. One fan sarcastically dubbed it a “Woodward masterclass” in a dig at the club’s much-derided executive vice-chairman.
“Do it. Save us”
“Protest plz I am begging”
“United getting Nuno after the City game. Ed Woodward masterclass”
“Please protest again”
“Utter shambles from United.”
“We are finished”
