Antonio Conte set to leave Inter Milan “within the next 48 hours”

May 26th, 2021 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is reportedly set to depart the San Siro within the next 48 hours following a huge row with the club’s president Steven Zhang.

The 51-year-old’s possible shock departure comes after he guided the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title since 2010 after finishing 12 points clear.

The ex-Chelsea gaffer hinted earlier this month he is unsure of what the future holds, despite having a year left on his contract.

Inter are known to be in serious financial trouble, with La Gazzetta dello Sport claiming their Chinese owners Suning and Zhang are demanding the club to raise money.

It has been stated that as well as Inter needing to cut the wage bill by 20 per cent, they need to raise a whopping £86.5million in player sales.

Former Juve manager Conte – who has recently been involved in a training ground boxing bout with Romelu Lukaku – is said to have been furious after being informed of the decision.

He is claimed to have expressed bitterness towards Inter’s new direction in the meeting and is now seeking to quit the club.
