Report: Conte asking questions about Sarri

Inter coach Antonio Conte has reportedly been speaking to Juventus managers, players and former players for weeks, asking questions about Maurizio Sarri's future at the Allianz Stadium.

La Repubblica journalist Franco Vanni claims the current Nerazzurri coach has been in touch with people from his former club in recent weeks and writes that Conte wanted a return to Turin already last year, when Pavel Nedved and Fabio Paratici agreed but the club was against the decision.

Maurizio Sarri has lifted his first Scudetto in his first season in charge of the Bianconeri, but lost the Coppa Italia Final to Napoli and, according to Italian media, risk losing his job if the Old Lady lose to Olympique Lyonnais in the last 16 of the Champions League this week.

La Gazzetta dello Sport adds that Antonio Conte has never completely closed with Juventus and in his speech, he always returns to their ‘model of excellence’.

Former Juventus captain Conte won everything with the Bianconeri and laid the foundations of the Juventus dominance in recent years.

After a 2-0 win against Atalanta on Saturday, the Nerazzurri coach used his post-match press conference railing against the club hierarchy, claiming they gave him and the team ‘zero protection’ from media attacks.

The reports in Italy claim the damage is irreparable and have linked Max Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino to the position at San Siro.
