A fresh insight into the future of Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte has been provided on Thursday evening.
The name of Italian tactician Conte has, of course, taken its place front and centre in the headlines over the course of the last 24 hours.
This comes amid suggestions that the one-time midfielder could be in line for a return to his home country, with Juventus.
On the back of a dismal opening to the new campaign, the Old Lady of Italian football, it is understood, are giving genuine consideration to the dismissal of boss Massimiliano Allegri.
Such a move, in turn, would give way to a high-profile pursuit of a replacement headmaster, with Conte, according to reports, high up on the wishlist of president Andrea Agnelli and co.
Such a move on Juventus’ part, however, would of course require Conte to actively seek out a departure from his current role.
The 53-year-old is in the midst of a hitherto fruitful spell back in England, which has seen him guide Tottenham Hotspur back into the thick of the title fight over the early weeks of the new season.
Those of a Spurs persuasion therefore left concerned by news of Juve’s interest in a reunion with their former manager, though, need not fret.
This comes amid confirmation that, in fact, Conte has not yet ruled out the possibility of extending his stay in England’s capital.
As per the reliable Alasdair Gold, sources close to the Italian have insinuated that he would be ‘happy’ to open discussions with the powers that be at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, over the terms of a new contract.
