Antonio Conte has demanded the signing of Stefan de Vrij from Inter Milan if he eventually replaces Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, Corriere della Sera reports.

 

 

The Italian is the frontrunner for the job if United change their position on Solskjaer’s future.

 

Solskjaer has been given three games to save his job at Old Trafford and they are against Tottenham, Atalanta and Manchester City.

 

If the 48-year-old oversees more damaging results, he could be out of the job by the next international break.

 

 

Conte is being considered as the “right solution” if that happens.

 

However, the 52-year-old would insist on bringing a trusted defender with him. The report claims a deal may well hinge on the “purchase of a loyal player from Inter as early as January”.

 

 

De Vrij made 32 appearances, as Inter won the Scudetto under Conte last season.

 

The Dutch defender is seen as “ideal for guiding the transition from a four-man defence to a three-man defence”.

        Man United are also said to be already making plans for Pogba’s exit and will strengthen their midfield options next summer.

        Pogba has entered the final year of his contract at Man United and has so far failed to agree on a new deal with the club.

        The France international has drawn the interest of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain in the past.

        Speaking on Pogba’s future earlier this week, the player’s agent, Mino Raiola said:
