It is reported that Inter’s owners, the Suning Holdings Group, are in talks with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to get Conte released from his contract.
The report suggests that Inter would be willing to heavily back Conte in the transfer market and have promised the Italian that he can pick his own signings. Among those linked with a move to the San Siro in recent days is Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez. Inter Milan great Sandro Mazzola, who worked as the club’s sporting director for four years, said: ‘I am crazy about Alexis Sanchez. For me, he is perfect for this team because over time he has evolved and now scores several goals a season. Inter need someone like him.’
The Tuttosport story suggests that with Conte agreeing to a move they will now work on convincing Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to let him go.
