Chelsea's previous manager, Antonio Conte, is close to becoming Inter Milan's next head coach, according to both Gianluca Di Marzio and Fabrizio Romano.
Antonio Conte now is NOT close to a comeback to Juventus. He’s not in talks with Juve at the moment; Antonio had new contacts with Inter on last days and it could become his next club, he’s going to decide soon, Inter is getting closer... #transfers #Conte #Inter #Juventus— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) May 8, 2019
A noi, in questo momento sinceramente non risulta. Pur rispettando tutte le fonti possibili. E ci risulta più Inter. Molto più Inter....Se cambierà qualcosa, o se ci risulterà qualcosa sul diverso, lo diremo. Ciao!— Gianluca Di Marzio (@DiMarzio) May 8, 2019
BREAKING: Sky in Italy are reporting that Antonio Conte is close to agreeing a deal to become @Inter's head coach. ⚫— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) May 9, 2019
Conte, who's continued to live in London after his sacking last summer while also battling with Chelsea over compensation payments — still unknown what the outcome of all that was or will be —was recently made the favourite to join Juventus after fresh rumors regarding Allegri's departure surfaced last night. Earlier, Conte was heavily linked with Roma and AC Milan as well.
But whether it's Juventus or Inter, it seems most likely that the Premier League-winning manager's next job will be in his home country, Italy. And that's good as he won't be coming back to haunt us twice a year, hopefully.
