Conte days away from new deal

Antonio Conte will sign a new contract at Juventus following the game against Cagliari, reports the Gazzetta dello Sport.

The tactician joined the Old Lady last summer from Siena when he put pen to paper on a two-year contract.

Less than a year later and with his side at the top of the table, Conte is on the verge of signing a new improved deal.

Conte is expected to extend his contract with the Turin giants until 2015, an agreement which will be worth a minimum €3m a season before bonuses.

That would make Conte the highest paid tactician in Serie A.

Juventus are currently three points clear of Milan in the Scudetto race with four games left this term.

The unbeaten Bianconeri have also reached the Final of the Coppa Italia in which they will face Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Juventus will play Cagliari in Trieste on May 6.
