Man Utd fans in meltdown at Conte heading to Spurs as Solskjaer ‘plays 4D chess’

Manchester United fans are in meltdown after learning Antonio Conte is heading for the vacant Tottenham job with suggestions Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has masterminded the situation.

Conte had been touted as Solskjaer's replacement at Old Trafford last week when the Norwegian seemed destined for the sack.

However, after Solskjaer remained in charge and beat Spurs 3-0, Nuno Espirito Santo has been axed and the former Chelsea boss is now in talks to be his successor.

This has riled up Red Devils supporters who were eager to see Conte replace their current boss and are likely to have those hopes shattered by their Premier League rivals.

One United fan tweeted: "WAIT ANTONIO CONTE IS GOING TO SPURS WTF."

"Just seen the Conte news, so done with this shambles of a club. Rotten from the top to bottom, Ole and the Glazers f***ing won," another said.

"Missing out on Conte so that we can keep Ole. Small club mentality," was the claim of a third United supporter.

Other football followers have lauded Solskjaer for helping to get the main threat to his job out of the picture.

Who will finish higher this season – Man Utd or Tottenham? Let us know in the comments section.

One said: "Ole is a genius. Knew United wanted Conte and Spurs on the brink of sacking Nuno. Conte is available for both clubs.

"Ole conjures one of his nine lives to beat Nuno, gets Nuno sacked, pushes Conte to Spurs and keeps his job."

Another added: "Save himself by beating Spurs, get Nuno sacked and take his likeliest replacement off the market (Conte) – Solskjaer is playing 4D chess."

Daily Star Sport exclusively revealed last week that United were losing interest in Conte after realising the huge costs they'd have to pay to hire him.

That's left him open to the advances of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy who reportedly contacted him on the weekend after the two teams had faced off.

According to reports from Italy, Conte will be in London today to finalise a deal with Levy and will be announced as Spurs' new manager.
