Beppe Marotta has explained that contract renewal talks between Juventus and Antonio Conte won’t conclude until the title race is over.
The Bianconeri, who hold a sizeable advantage at the top of Serie A, are seen to have been in talks with their tactician over extending his contract, which currently expires in June 2015.
However, the club’s director general has revealed that any negotiations have now taken a backseat in the business end of the season.
“There are no problems or distances between us,” Marotta has explained this week, alongside revealing a trip to Real Madrid.
“The relationship between Conte, the club, the President Agnelli and the leadership is excellent.
“At this time we are all focused on what would be an historic victory, which would be a third successive Scudetto.
“We have set aside the discussion about the future and will discuss it further on, aware that we have a great Coach on our hands.”
