Inter contacted Antonio Conte who is interested in a return to Italy

Antonio Conte

Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte is interested in a return to Italy and Inter already contacted him, reports the British newspaper The Times.

The former Inter coach wasn’t on the sideline for his Tottenham in the past three weeks, recovering from having his gallbladder removed. This time he spent in Italy and the report claims that Conte is really thinking of returning to Serie A. The coach will be back for the important Champions League clash versus AC Milan. His contract expires at the end of the season and the outcome of this fixture may turn out to be decisive for his future in London.

Antonio Conte is also fighting for a place in the Premier League’s top four. Failing to qualify for next year’s Champions League may also be a turning point for the board’s decision. On the other hand, Conte made it clear a few times in the past two seasons that he is also not entirely happy with the situation at Tottenham.

The report looks into the possible destinations for Conte. The first option that emerges is exactly his previous team – Inter. The first informal contacts have already been made. Still, Inter management is also waiting to see how Simone Inzaghi will handle the last part of the season. Another option for Antonio Conte is Roma. Jose Mourinho’s position is also in doubt and will be evaluated after the campaign. The newspaper also claims that a return to his other former team Juventus is unlikely. This is mainly due to the club’s current difficult financial and sporting situation.
