A recent report has suggested that Newcastle United could still sign Antonio Conte despite reported interest in the Italian from Manchester United.
Steve Bruce fired
In what was perhaps the least surprising news of the month, Newcastle recently announced that they had parted ways with Steve Bruce.
#NUFC can confirm that Steve Bruce has left his position as head coach by mutual consent.
The club would like to record its appreciation to Steve for his contribution and wishes him the best for the future.

Bruce was appointed head of Newcastle in July 2019 and then led 97 games for his childhood club.
In that time, Bruce had 29 wins, tied 25 games and lost 43. Bruce leaves the club sitting in the relegation zone, without having achieved a league victory so far this season.
But before this season, Bruce had done a decent job of keeping the cash-strapped magpies afloat despite Mike Ashley’s clear unwillingness to invest heavily in the team.
But with Newcastle now having the richest owners In world football, it was obvious to almost everyone that Bruce’s days at St James were numbered.
At the moment, Graeme Jones is in charge of the club and would guide Newcastle to a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace last weekend.
But it is obvious that Newcastle will be looking for a new manager in the near future.
Count to Newcastle?
A manager who would probably be a dream date is Antonio Conte.
The Italian is one of the best coaches available today, having previously shone in the Premier League with Chelsea before going to Inter Milan to end Juventus’ reign of dominance over Serie A, which also began with Conte. So many years ago.
But with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fighting for results, there was a feeling that Manchester United would be the team that would sign Conte. Was even reported earlier this week the club had made initial contact with Conte.
However, reports now suggest that Man United is not as close to Conte as some fans might have hoped.
According to him Chronicle, quoting the Daily StarNewcastle could still sign Conte, as the dream management appointment with Man United says they are losing interest.
The report adds that Man United will distance himself from the former Inter manager on financial issues.
Could this open the door for Newcastle to swoop in and take over the Italian?
