Did Conte agree Juve pledge?

Following on from PSG denials, it’s reported Antonio Conte agreed not to join another Italian club this season after Juventus.

The Coach terminated his contract by mutual consent two days into pre-season training, replaced by Massimiliano Allegri.

Today the Corriere dello Sport claimed he was in negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain, but these stories were quickly denied.

Instead, sources within PSG suggested the rumour was put about by Conte’s entourage to disguise talks with a Serie A rival.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Juve only released Conte from his contract early if he pledged not to sign for another Italian club this season.

This would still leave the door open for the Italy bench, although that can only be offered to him after a new Federation President is elected next month.
