Antonio Conte is waiting. PSG are there, Manchester United as well and let’s not forget Bayern Munich. According to the Corriere dello Sport, Zhang is struggling with the idea of sacking Spalletti to sign Conte because the total cost would be about €70M (some reports suggest even higher at €80M).
Marotta and Ausilio are pushing for this solution but if Spalletti manages to finish third then he is more confident to get a confirmation for next season. Ausilio will certainly be confirmed because he has an excellent relationship with Steven Zhang.
Anyway, about Conte, if Marotta manages to convince Suning, the former Chelsea coach will return to Italy to be on the Inter bench. He already has clear ideas: Icardi will leave to make way for Lukaku (or alternatively Dzeko). Conte wants to understand what scenarios are going to be in Italy and abroad before deciding his future. This is why his responses to Roma will not arrive next week and so we will need a few more days for that.
The Roman newspaper believes that with Conte, Roberto Gagliardini will stay because the former Italian coach values the midfielder highly.
