Inter Milan head coach 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 club giant tactician had shown interest for the job and is the frontrunner if United change their position on Solskjaer’s future.
Solskjaer who has not recorded positive performance recently and suffered an humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, 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
