This comes after Nuno Espirito Santo was sacked yesterday morning following Man United’s 3-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.
Conte, who has been out of work for a few months after leaving Inter Milan, was said to be very interested in the Man United job had it become available.
The Italian has now signed a deal to become the Spurs manager despite rejecting the project in the summer.
Antonio has won the Premier League with fellow London side Chelsea in 2017 and has won 5 top-flight league titles including 4 Serie A’s with Juventus (3) and Inter Milan (1).
Reports suggest that while the Man United board were considering sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, no managers were directly contacted by the club.
It is understood that Daniel Levy, Tottenham Hotspur Chairman, has agreed to spend around £100m on the squad as per Antonio Conte’s wishes.
Spurs currently sit 2 points behind Man United after the weekend’s games.
