Antonio Conte ‘would seriously consider’ Manchester United if he called as Tottenham warned he risked losing his ‘defeated’ manager


Tottenham have been warned that Antonio Conte will leave the Premier League club unless he is backed in the transfer market.

Spurs’ defeat in the Carabao Cup semi-final to Chelsea underscored the need to invest in the squad as they were easily beaten by their London rivals 3-0 in two sets.

Spurs saw another trophy chance slip away

It was another opportunity for a trophy that went missing for the club as their wait for silverware enters a 14th year.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy traveled to the Bahamas earlier this month to speak with owner Joe Lewis to discuss the size of the January transfer budget.

Conte has already taken aim at a number of targets, including Wolves winger Adama Traore, but has yet to bring in anyone.

Former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara has been concerned about what he’s seen from the Italian on the sidelines and the recent comments he’s made, and has suggested he might step away on the sidelines ‘it is not supported.

Conte was linked with Man United work before signing Ralf Rangnick as interim boss in November.

United are still on the hunt for a permanent replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with many fans believing Conte could be an ideal choice and O’Hara suggesting a move to Old Trafforc could still be considered.

Levy traveled to Bahamas to speak with owner Joe Lewis about January transfer plans

“I watch Antonio Conte, and I haven’t seen his interviews after tonight’s game, but the last ones I’ve seen of him he looks defeated,” O’Hara told talkSPORT.

“He’s not the same on the side he was when he first entered. Looks like he’s lost his passion a bit.

“He looks sideways, thinking ‘how lucky am I.’ He has to play against left winger Doherty again.

“The players we have there – Emerson Royal we signed him, Bryan Gil we signed him this season, it’s not good enough.

“Daniel Levy, if he doesn’t buy and bring top quality players, Antonio Conte will walk.

“It will work, I tell you. If Manchester United called him tomorrow and said ‘we want you’, he would seriously consider leaving. “

Conte has revealed he had talks with Spurs chief Levy and football general manager Fabio Paratici ahead of the semi-final clash with Chelsea and described what he needs to make the squad stronger.

“When you have the opportunity to speak to the owner [Levy] and the sports director… with Paratici I have the opportunity to talk every day… but talking with our owner was important, ”he said.

“Also because I like to be honest and always tell the truth. You know I don’t like to lie to keep a good relationship or to be very gentle or too polite. It was good to tell the truth and it was a good meeting.

“I had asked the club for time to do my assessment. They asked me after a month to have a date but I said, ‘No. I’d rather have a month to do the correct assessment. ‘ To show me who deserves to stay here. Now the situation is very clear and I was happy to have this conversation with the owner.

“Now I only have one way – it’s on the pitch and the training sessions every day… to improve the level of my players. Then the club knows the situation and, if they want to help me in any other way, I appreciate that.
