Chelsea to make Conte highest-paid manager in club’s history with new £40m contract offer

Antonio Conte claimed the Premier League crown during his first season in England and could seal a memorable double should his side beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final this weekend.

Rumours have circulated in recent months as to whether the Italian plans to remain in the Premier League beyond the summer, following reported interest from Italian side Inter Milan.

According to The Mirror, the Chelsea board want to keep Conte at Stamford Bridge by handing the coach a new deal worth £9.6m each year until 2021, making him the highest-earning coach in the club’s history.

It is also being suggested that should Conte put pen to paper on a new contract, Chelsea would be prepared to back the Italian significantly in the coming transfer window.
