Man Utd next manager odds – Antonio Conte favourite for Red Devils job with Solskjaer given three games to save his job

ANTONIO CONTE is the standout favourite for the Manchester United job.

That's according to bookmakers Sky Bet, who've drastically altered their betting market after a flurry of activity.

SunSport understand the Italian is on a four-man shortlist of candidates being considered for the position.

Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers and Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag are also among the contenders.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano said: "To be clear about Antonio Conte.

"He’s never been a fan of joining clubs during the season as it’s not in his style - the only club right now that could change Antonio's mind is Manchester United."

Romano continued: "There’s no doubt on Antonio Conte decision since days.

"He wants Manchester United job and he’d be ready to accept. But there’s still no official proposal on the table, as things stand."

Conte remains a free agent having left Inter Milan after guiding them to a first Serie A title in over a decade.

Elsewhere Zinedine Zidane has drifted markedly from 2/1 to 10/1 with some reports claiming he's not interested.

Brendan Rodgers is also 10/1 with Erik ten Hag and PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino further behind at 12/1 and 14/1 respectively.

Solskjaer will take charge of Manchester United’s game at Tottenham on Saturday following advice from Sir Alex Ferguson, who gave his support to his former pupil.

United then face a crunch Champions League tie against Atalanta before a Manchester derby four days later.

It is understood that Solskjaer and his staff are worried that they will be sacked if the team perform poorly in those three outings.
