Inter Milan are hoping to nab Antonio Conte away from Chelsea by offering the manager a sensational £250,000-a-week contract, according to various reports in Italy.
Tuttosport claim Inter’s Chinese owners have identified Antonio Conte as the man they want to bring the glory days back to the San Siro.
Not only are they willing to offer the former Italy manager huge wages, but the Suning group, which owns the club, will also hand him a £350million transfer kitty.
Inter’s Chinese owners are ready to re-establish themselves among Europe’s elite and believe Conte is the man to spearhead this bid.
Conte, however, is believed to be happy in west London and further increased his reputation with Saturday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal.
Inter sacked Robert Mancini before the start of the season while Frank De Boer lasted under three months with the new regime. The Nerazzurri had won nine matches in a row before yesterday nights’ loss to Juventus.
Stefano Piolo will retain managerial duties until the end of the season as the Inter hierarchy scour for a full-time boss.
