Antonio Conte I could have the hours counted in front of the Inter de Milan. According to an exclusive this Wednesday ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, The Italian coach will leave the bench as he is not willing to assume the weakening of the squad to which the club is obliged to clean up its accounts. And it is that according to the aforementioned information, Inter has to obtain this summer at least 90 million in sales, which translates into the departure of some other starting player. In addition, Inter has to reduce its salary bill by 15-20%.
Thus, in a meeting last Saturday with the board, Conte would have shown his anger when considering that now more than ever he has to take a step forward to continue competing, which, according to the Italian newspaper, opened the door exit. The coach has a contract until 2022, but Inter would be willing to let him go amicably. Massimiliano Allegri, Maurizio Sarri and Sinisa Mihajlovic would be the favorites to succeed him.
Serie A Champion
Conte arrived at Inter in 2019 to replace Luciano Spalletti. Last season they reached the final of the Europa League, where they lost the title against Sevilla, and this season they closed the year by proclaiming themselves champion of Serie A.
The Italian coach is the main person in charge of the ‘Scudetto‘raised by Inter a few weeks ago, thus breaking the nine-year hegemony of Juventus. Even so, the adjustments that the entity would have to face due to the coronavirus they would leave the coach out of the project, something that in Italy they assure will be confirmed in the next 48 hours.
Among the favorites to make cash are the names of Lukaku, Lautaro and Bastoni, although the Belgian striker is the piece that Inter will try to hold on to until the last moment. Others like Barella, De Vrij and even Achraf they could also leave the club. The latter could land at PSG. ‘La Gazzeta dello Sport’ tells that Conte could follow in his footsteps and also make a stop in Paris, where Pochettino is not guaranteed his permanence.
In 2018-19, Inter closed the season with 417 million euros in revenue, the highest in its history, and with an average of 61,429 spectators, it was the club with the most fans per game in the Italian league. The coronavirus pandemic would have given a return to the situation of the club’s coffers, and although the league title has been achieved, Inter will have to live a not easy summer.
