Reportedly Suning Group want to bring in a big-name manager and have set their sights on the current Chelsea boss.
To help persuade Conte, Suning have offered him a €200m transfer kitty, and they want former Inter player and director of sport, Lele Oriali, to return to the club. Oriali worked alongside Conte when he as Italy team manager, helping guide the Azzurri to the quarter finals of Euro 2016.
As for Conte, his agent Federico Pastorello threw some petrol of the fire this week when he told GianlucaDiMarzio.com
“Will Conte stay at Chelsea? If he wins a title and begins the cycle , the objective is one of continuity.”
“But if offers from clubs arrive, new opportunities may arise, especially at historical clubs.”
There are reports out from London that Conte has told Chelsea to out on hold any talks of a contract extension, as first he wants to see if they’ll keep stars such as Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Diego Costa.
Conte confirmed he misses his family, who are still based in Italy, and will have to take that into account for next season.
Do you think that Antonio Conte will be managing Chelsea or Inter next season?
