Italy manager Antonio Conte has reportedly agreed to manage Chelsea next season.

The former Juventus manager is keen to return to club management when his contract with the Italian national team expires after Euro 2016.

Chelsea have been linked with several managers including the likes of Simeone, Ancelotti, Conte, Allegri and it seems that the Blues have made their choice.

According to reports, Conte has agreed to take over at Stamford Bridge in the summer. Although interim manager Guus Hiddink has done a good job so far, he is expected to leave at the end of the season.

Conte is a massive fan favourite at Juventus and has won the Serie A with them previously. He was instrumental in their rise after promotion to Italy’s top division.

Chelsea won the Premier League title under Jose Mourinho last season. But the Blues made a shocking start to this season and Mourinho had to pay the price for that.

Conte will be expected to take Chelsea back to the top of English football and the Italian will have quite a challenge rebuilding this Chelsea side.

However, Conte has already done a similar job with Juventus and will be looking forward to his next challenge in the Premier League.
