Conte Freshly Linked with Potential Juventus Reunion

Antonio Conte quieted the rumors about a potential return to Juventus with an outburst during a presser. However, the whispers aren’t going away and have intensified after the Bianconeri got eliminated in the group stage of the Champions League.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Tottenham gaffer would be the top choice of president Andrea Agnelli if Massimiliano Allegri got the ax at the end of the season. The contract of the Spurs boss expires in June. His team offered him an extension, but he’s taking his time before committing.

The Juventus chairman and Conte have mended fences. The Bianconeri had the opportunity to re-hire him in 2019. The exec was still irked for how the manager left abruptly back in the day and rubber-stamped the appointment of Maurizio Sarri. The coach exacted his revenge by going to Inter and leading them back to winning ways. The two had a public altercation during a Coppa Italia game.

They reportedly cleared the air in a long meeting last year. His name was already lightly attached to the Bianconeri’s bench when PSG briefly considered poaching Allegri last summer.

Our Take on Conte and Juventus

The rumors will be there until he inks a new deal with Tottenham. The situation is already highly unusual for a top club. The gaffer has been sending smoke signals too, as he recently stressed the difficulty of living in a hotel away from his family, which resides in Turin. Even though there’s no real reason why he should flee Tottenham, he does love a challenge. Needless to say, it would be the optimal solution for the Bianconeri, but there’s a long way to go to get there.
