The Red Devils were first linked with the Italian manager in 2018, but the United board decided against his hiring to replace Jose Mourinho.
According to the Daily Express, United were worried about Conte's fractious personality, which can lead to arguments with higher ups.
Despite his on the pitch success, which has seen him win a league title at every top club he has managed, Conte does not stay for very long at his jobs.
Should the Red Devils sack manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the coming weeks and replace him with Conte, which is being suggested in the Italian press, then it would be a significant shift in their thinking.
While the club may still be wary of Conte's antics, they may believe that his trophy winning capabilities are worth the risk.
