Conte's Chelsea exit likely as Italian Job waits

Antonio Conte says he plans to stay at Chelsea beyond the summer, and will reject any overtures from the Italian football federation to return to the global job.

New FIGC vice-commissioner Alessandro Costacurta has talked to Il Corriere della Sera to reveal the next steps of the Italian football federation in pursuit of a new coach after Giampiero Ventura's sacking in November.

"The names are the ones you've already heard", he told reporters. So no, I must be honest, no [plans to speak with him]. I signed for three years and my desire is to respect the contract.

Desperate Azzurri chiefs are ready to fly to London to sound out the beleaguered Blues coach about becoming national team boss again, according to a report in The Sun.

"We reached the semi-final of the Carabao Cup, there is the FA Cup and have to play the game in the next round and in the Champions League we have to face maybe the best team in this moment in Europe. I don't know [what the new players will add], I'll have to see".

Conte said: "There has been a lot of speculation about me".

Antonio Conte does not understand continual speculation over his position at Chelsea and remains adamant he will see out the remainder of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

"Yeah, as you know very well I trust in my work and this is the only thing I trust in".

Conte added: 'We have to do our best in every competition.
