Sky: Conte close to Inter

Sky Sport Italia reports Inter are closing in on a deal to appoint Antonio Conte as their next Coach.

According to the broadcaster, the ‘deep’ respect between Conte and Inter general manager Beppe Marotta, plus the ‘solid and ambitious’ project offered by Suning Group, go hand-in-hand.

The former Chelsea and Italy boss had been linked with a return to Juve, but Sky insists there has not even been a phone call between the two.

Furthermore, their separation in the summer of 2014 has ‘not yet been fully digested’ by the Coach or President Andrea Agnelli.

Although Sky do not rule out a late intervention from the Old Lady, it describes the chances of that happening as ‘very difficult’.
