Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has two years remaining on his current deal with Chelsea and with the club keen to secure his long-term future after he guided Chelsea to the title in his debut season in England, reports claim Conte has been reluctant to sign a new deal.
However, a recent report now claims a new turn of event as the Chelsea manager is reportedly close to agreeing a new contract with the Blues after positive talks with the Chelsea board.
According to Sky Sports in Italy, Conte will earn around £10million-a-year when he puts pen to paper on a new contract, making him the highest-paid manager in the club’s history.
Conte revealed last season that he was making plans to bring his wife Elisabetta and daughter to England – a move that means his long-term future is indeed in Chelsea.
While conte was said to be frustrated with Chelsea’s inactivity in the transfer market, the Italian has been assured that the signings will roll in pretty soon.
