Erik ten Hag is another name that has been considered – he has already been involved in talks with the club.
The Italian has since joined Tottenham, but he is still on the Red Devils’ list of potential candidates.
And McCoist believes that he would be the perfect man for the job.
When speaking to FourFourTwo, he said: “I think United missed the boat by not appointing Conte at the end of last year, and in normal circumstances you would think that ship had sailed, however, nothing surprises you in football.
“You hear the rumours that Mauricio Pochettino wants to go back to Spurs, and doesn’t fancy United, so I wouldn’t rule out Conte going to United.
“The one thing Conte wants is financial backing, and I am not sure he is happy with what he is getting at Spurs.
“He has done a few strange interviews, and made a few comments that would indicate that is the case.
“United have great players, but they are not a great team, and I think Conte could help mould them into that. It is a time for real change.”
Tottenham have had a mixed season since Conte took over at the end of last year.
He said: “I have to talk to the club.
“Maybe I’m not so good. Tottenham called me to change things – but I’m too honest.
“We are doing everything to change situation but it’s not enough.”
