Antonio Conte can leave Inter Milan as his future remains in doubt. As reported by Tutto Sport’s print edition. But at the moment, both Conte and the Nerazzurri are entirely looking forward to the Serie A title. Also, Inter have a six-point lead with a game in hand over AC Milan, with 11 games left. So they are favourites for the Scudetto. But Tutto Sport’s print edition has said that Inter’s ownership decisions will play a huge role in determining the future of their head coach. Suning have every intention to remain as Inter’s owners.
Suning’s will to stay can also be seen in the silence that has fallen over their talks with US investment group Fortress. Over a potential ‘financing’ deal worth €250 million. Negotiations are ongoing. Also, Inter president Steven Zhang wants a deal done before he returns to Milan at the start of April. Suning have halted talks with BC Partners. In spite of plenty of talks in recent months about the British private equity firm’s hopes to buy Inter. In any case, the report warned that Suning would still need some financial support from the Chinese government. If they want to get Inter properly back on their feet again.
Conte can leave Inter if they can’t spend in summer
If Inter finds themselves in a situation where they can not spend on players in the summer transfer window. Just like in January, then there is a risk that Conte would leave instead of tackling next season’s UEFA Champions League without reinforcements.
If Conte did choose to part company with Inter, the paper said, his next job could be in the Premier League with either Manchester United or Tottenham. Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea all have more ‘stable’ situations. So they are unlikely to be going for any coaches out of work in the summer.
