Chelsea manager Antonio Conte isn’t a target for AC Milan after being linked with the Italian earlier this year, the Standard reports.
The Serie A club reportedly contacted Conte to replace under fire manager Vincenzo Montella, according to the Express. However, those reports have been dismissed by Milan’s director of football Massimiliano Mirabelli.
Even though Milan spent £150m on 11 players in the summer, they are currently seventh in the Italian top tier, nine points behind leaders Napoli. Despite this poor start, Mirabelli insists that Montella will not be sacked and that the club aren’t looking for a replacement, as the Standard reports.
Mirabelli is quoted by the Standard saying:
“We already have a manager and we are not thinking of Conte nor about other managers.”
Conte has just two-years left on his current contract and dismissed talks about wanting to leave the Blues in a press-conference earlier today.
It’s great to see that Conte has no plans of leaving us in the future and that he looks fully committed to the club.
