The Italian capital team surpassed Inter Milan in the race to sign former captain Chelsea.
Antonio Conte’s future is still becoming the subject of Italian media attention in recent days. Inter Milan is the first team to ask to recruit the 50-year-old strategist. AC Milan and Juventus are also showing interest. However, the new AS Roma is dominant.
Will Antonio Conte return to AS Roma?
According to La Repubblica, after a year away from training, Antonio Conte wants to lead a team at home. The legend of Francesco Totti had a direct meeting with the former Azzurri captain to convince him to come to the Olympico.
The former captain of AS Roma found the knot. Accordingly, the Giallorossi is ready to appoint Gianluca Petrachi as the Sports Director even though he is still under contract with Torino. Petrachi was a close friend of Antonio Conte and Francesco Totti, so if he landed in Olympico, the former Azzurri captain would not meet disagreements in the transfer policy.
The next step “Prince of Rome” needs to do is to help Antonio Conte solve the problems of contract compensation from Chelsea. Without a big surprise, the 50-year-old strategist will officially take over the “hot chair” left by Claudio Ranieri in the summer.
