Why Chelsea are hoping that Antonio Conte replaces Jose Mourinho at Manchester United

Chelsea could save themselves a fortune if Manchester United decided to appoint Antonio Conte as Jose Mourinho’s replacement.
Mourinho’s position at Old Trafford has been under threat since the start of the season but the pressure has eased ever so slightly following the 3-2 win over Newcastle United on Saturday.
Mourinho is due to meet United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward during the international break as the Portuguese is reportedly concerned that the club are already planning to sack him.
Zinedine Zidane has been heavily linked with the United job, but Conte is also available after leaving Stamford Bridge.

Conte, who guided Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season, was replaced by Maurizio Sarri in July.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Conte is due over £9 million as part of his severance package but Chelsea are reluctant to meet the full pay-out.
