Antonio Conte continues to be linked with a return to his native Italy.

This time the club showing interest in the Chelsea manager is five-time Champions League winners AC Milan, Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The Serie A side have had a poor season so far replacing Vincenzo Montella with Gennaro Gattuso.

Milan are 11th in the top flight despite spending £120m on players in the summer.

The Italian newspaper also reports that Roberto Mancini is on Milan’s managerial shortlist.

Conte will need backing from the board post-season

The relationship between Conte and the board has soften as this season has gone on.

Our opening fixture of the season in which Burnley stunned the Blues 3-2 at the Bridge put added pressure on Conte.

This was following a difficult summer as the 49-year-old wasn’t too pleased with the club’s summer transfer activity.

Hopefully this will change as the champions will want to have a more organised transfer window after this season.
