Antonio Conte is reportedly set to commit his future to Chelsea.

According to the Mirror, the Italian is set to pen a lucrative new deal worth a whopping £40million.

Conte took charge of a side that was battered and beaten, and fast turned them into a well oiled winning machine. Chelsea are Premier League champions, and it appears as though he will be rewarded for his excellent work.

The Mirror report that Conte is set to take a short break after the FA Cup final, but will then return for talks with the club’s hierarchy. The Mirror believe that he will pen a £9.6million-a-year contract, which will run until 2021.

The Mirror note that Inter Milan were interested in appointing Conte, but he will instead take further English lessons and look for a home for himself, his wife and his daughter, further showing his commitment to his project at Stamford Bridge.
