The 51-year-old was said to have been told by chairman Steven Zhang to offload players to the value of £70million this summer while also reducing the wage bill by 15-20 per cent.
Zhang was at Inter’s headquarters earlier today to meet with senior staff where it was reported there would be a switch in focus to developing the club’s younger talent while Conte wanted to keep a core of eight senior players which included Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
Conte’s contract is due to expire next summer with Romano claiming that the two parties have now decided that the former Chelsea manager will leave the Italian champions immediately.
