The name of Antonio Conte continues to be in the thought of Inter management. The former coach of Italy, which listened to Roma proposal in recent days, is still alive in terms of being an option to become the next coach of Inter. The Zhang family is willing to make the change to improve the technical guidance and coaching at the club.
The biggest obstacle, one that is holding Inter back for the moment, has to do with economics. Relieving Spalletti from his coaching duties will cost Inter €25M in gross income (staff included). Considering that Conte wants €11M net per year, for three years, plus wages of his large staff, this is a massive financial expense. Another thing is that the Nerazzurri, despite leaving UEFA settlement agreement at the start of July, will not be able to guarantee Conte the purchase of top players to fill the gap with Juventus.
Besides Conte, Inter still have other cards to play. The first is Tottenham coach Pochettino who is being linked to Milan in recent weeks. And then there is Allegri, the third name of the current small list of coaching candidates that Inter are evaluating.
Allegri yesterday told the media that he is staying at Juventus and that he “only” needs to meet management to plan for next season and maybe to finalize the renewal for another year.
