Conte-Abramovich meeting scheduled

Azzurri Coach Antonio Conte and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will meet within three days, say reports.

The head of the Italian national team is frustrated by his lack of autonomy and his constant clashes with clubs and is being insistently linked with a departure to the Premier League.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the final, decisive meeting to determine Conte's new job will take place within three days.

Roman Abramovich will meet Antonio Conte in Montecarlo, where Conte's brother and agent Daniele lives. They are expected to iron out the details of their deal, with the Italian Coach offered a three-year deal for €6.5m per season.

La Gazzetta reports that Abramovich is already satisfied about signing Conte and just wants to confirm his good impressions in person.

The exact day and time of the meeting is uncertain, with some sources even claiming it should have been yesterday, and others arguing it could be delayed for a maximum of ten days.
