Conte close to Juve extension

Coach Antonio Conte will commit his future to Italian champions Juventus by putting pen to paper on a new deal before the start of June.

The tactician, who has won the Scudetto in his first season as Juve boss, is presently tied to the outfit until 2013 after his arrival from Siena last summer.

Juventus are keen to tie down the Coach to a new deal and they’ve already lined up a renewal until 2016, with an increased salary.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the former midfielder will sign the paperwork at some stage after the Coppa Italia Final on May 20 against Napoli but before the end of the month.

Conte, still unbeaten as Juve boss, yesterday revealed that he always expected to become a Coach once his playing days came to an end.
