Antonio Conte and Inter Milan have reached an agreement to part ways

Inter Milan and Antonio Conte have decided to part ways. The Italian coach has avoided speaking to the media following the scudetto victory, and the worst fears of Nerazzurri fans have come true.

The reports followed revealing comments from Conte’s assistant Cristian Stellini after the 5-1 win over Udinese on Sunday when Inter, having already sealed the title at the beginning of May, got to lift the trophy.

“We are enthusiastic about continuing but when you have a top coach, he requires a top project too.”

“The sale of top players could change things but it’s up to the club to make clear what the situation is.” said Stellini.

He led Inter to the Serie A title this season, and it was widely expected that he would stay in charge for at least one more season. However, despite their success, Inter is in serious financial trouble and may be forced to sell a number of their key players and offer wage cuts this summer. Conte is said to have been enraged when the president informed him of this.

Inter is preparing to ask Max Allegri to take over on the bench, with Maurizio Sarri and Sinisa Mihajlovic on the reserve list. Conte currently earns more than 12 million euros per season, and his departure may have an impact on the futures of players close to the head coach, such as Achraf, Lautaro, and Lukaku.

Conte could well become a strong contender for the Spurs job or the Madrid job if Zidane plans on leaving his post for Juventus.
