Conte contract talks postponed?

Antonio Conte’s decision to commit to Juventus for next season is seen as a compromise, with contract renewal talks to be revisited later.

The club yesterday evening confirmed in a brief statement through their official Twitter account that the 44-year-old would be staying as Coach for the 2014-15 season.

Whilst ending uncertainty that had been accentuated by the Coach’s own hints during the closing weeks of the season, talk in the media today now centres on the long term connotations to the two parties’ agreement to continue working together.

The Corriere dello Sport focus on the indication that a renewal has not been signed and that, entering the final year of his current contract, talks between Conte and Juve over an extension are set to be revisited, but only in a few months from now.

The situation is speculated by the Rome publication as a compromise on issues that club and technician are yet to agree on.

Tuttosport also suggest contract renewal talks are on the backburner, but they guess that Conte and the Old Lady would not enter into such a position if a separation come June 2015 would be inevitable.
