EPL  clubs on red alert as Conte ‘plans to return to mgt next season

Former Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte, is planning to return to management next season, reports suggest.

That is according to Fabrizio Romano, who claims that Conte is open to a ‘new project’.

Romano tweeted: “Antonio Conte is currently planning to be back next season with a new project, if nothing big happens with top club official calls.”

Conte had a successful two-year stint in the Premier League with Chelsea as he won the title in 2017 and the FA Cup a year later.

The Italian manager has been out of a job since the summer when he left Inter Milan – shortly after leading them to their first Serie A title in 11 years.

The 52-year-old has been in high demand ever since with Premier League clubs being on red alert.

The former Italy boss interviewed for Tottenham’s position of head coach in the summer, only for those talks to break down.

It was then reported that he would be open to taking over at Manchester United if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left.

However, it is not thought the ex-Juventus manager would be interested in replacing Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.

Sky Sports reporter Gianluca Di Marzio previously said: “He would only accept a winning project.

“So I don’t think he would accept Arsenal and that is why he said no to Tottenham.

“I think he would only accept if say Manchester United called.”

Conte is also reportedly included in a managerial shortlist to replace Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman.

The list also includes former Juve boss Andrea Pirlo and ex-Germany manager Joachim Low as well as Barca legend Xavi.
