Antonio Conte has all-but confirmed that he will be staying at Chelsea this summer, report The Sun.
The prospect of losing Conte this summer is one that no Chelsea fan wants to entertain. He took charge of a side in decline, and took them back to the summit of the Premier League table.
With victory over Arsenal on Saturday evening, he will complete the traditional double in his debut season at Stamford Bridge, following in the footsteps of compatriot Carlo Ancelotti. There could be plenty more silverware to follow, too.
The Sun quote Conte, who commits his future to the Premier League champions and confirms he will sign any contract extension that is offered to him by the club’s hierarchy:
“At the moment my situation is very clear. I have a two year contract with the club. If they give me the possibility to stay here and extend my contract, for sure I will be able to do this.”
If Conte wants to stay at Chelsea long-term, it is only good news for the club. You have to feel as though this is only the beginning of the Conte revolution.
