Chelsea manager Antonio Conte might become the next coach for the Italian National team as the Italian FA are reportedly interested in working with the former Juventus manager.
Conte is currently under intense pressure to keep his place as Chelsea manager beyond this season due to his team’s uninspiring performances which have seen them occupy the fifth position in the Premier League table.
The Italian tactician seems to have brought his players back to their winning ways but that could be insufficient to convince the Blues hierarchy to extend his stay at the Stamford Bridge stadium.
According to reports emanating from an Italian media outlet Starsports, Conte is one of the favourite managers who have been tipped to return back to his homeland where he was the national team before he agreed to work with the clubs.
Having failed to qualify for the summer World Cup, the Italian FA are in desperate search for a capable manager who would return the European nation back to its glory days.
They have reportedly made enquiries about the possibility of signing Former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti earlier this season but the manager rejected the bid as he hopes to join Arsenal should Wenger fail to secure his job in the summer.
As for Costacurta, who was part of Conte’s backroom staff in his first spell as Italy manager, told reporters that he will speak with the Chelsea boss so as to know whether he would love to accept the offer from his former employer.
