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.

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.
