Yet More Conte to Inter Speculation
With Chelsea flying high in the Premier League and being labelled as Champions elect by most pundits, it is fair to say that Antonio Conte has done a fantastic job since taking over the managerial hot-seat.
However, like most Chelsea supporters those nagging rumours circulating relating to a move to Inter Milan continue to cause concern.
Yesterday, the good folk of The Sun were at it again, reporting that the Serie A club are prepared to offer Antonio Conte double the salary he is currently receiving at Stamford Bridge.
The article points out that the Italian side, funded by the wealthy Suning Holdings Group, who own a 70 per cent stake in Inter, are keen to make the club the European super-power they once were.
Further more, in somewhat mischievous fashion; our referenced source sticks a line in its article suggesting that Conte, if he were in the Inter Milan hot-seat, would have full control when it comes to the clubs transfer policy.
Now those of you who have been following the stories spat out by the tabloid media, might recall that gossip was spread about Conte wanting more control over transfers at Stamford Bridge if he were to sign a new contract, something he later distanced himself from in his pre-match press conference ahead of the game against Stoke.
Therefore, has this latest offering from the best-selling tabloid newspaper in the UK increased that anxiety with regards to Conte possibly leaving this summer?
No, not really, the scenes of celebration sparked by Gary Cahill`s winner at Stoke yesterday show me where Conte`s heart lies, how about you?
