As of late, the links between Chelsea and Italian manager Antonio Conte picked up a lot of steam. After rumours of the club setting up budgets and priority targets for the next transfer window, we now have reports on the details of Conte's potential deal with the club.
According to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea will be offering to Conte a £4.75 million-per-season after tax contract, with a three-year duration. The £4.75 million earnings would represent a yearly pay hike of £1.15 million for Conte, whose contract with the Italian national team runs out by the summer this year. The contract won't have clauses with bonuses for winning trophies or meeting any targets, though,
With Massimiliano Allegri on the verge of earning a new contract with Juventus and Diego Simeone unlikely to abandon Atlético Madrid even under their FIFA registration ban, Conte is the clear favourite to take over Chelsea next summer. Whether the move comes to fruition remains to be seen but until then, the rumour mill should keep on rolling.
