“My heart is always in Italy” Conte
The current Blues manager has hinted that he could join either AC Milan or Internazionale at the San Siro following their respective takeovers by Chinese investment groups.
The current Chelsea head coach took charge at Stamford Bridge last year and has guided the club towards a possible Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season.
However, Conte has been linked with a move back to Italy at various times in the past year, with speculation suggesting that Inter are eager to tempt him with a blank cheque to San Siro as part of their long-term project to revive the glory of the club.
The 47-year-old has admitted that could be tempted to go back to his home country and even hinted at interest from Inter and AC Milan, both of whom are now bankrolled by Chinese investment groups.
Asked if he would return home, Conte told TV show Emigratis: “Yes. My heart is always in Italy.”
When it was suggested that his wages would be too high for Serie A clubs, he replied: “Haven’t the new owners come in now?”
However, Conte says he and his family are happy in London and is willing to stay for a long time.
Conte’s Chelsea are now four points clear off Tottenham at the top of the Premier League ahead of Sunday’s trip to face Everton at Goodison’s Park.
