CalcioMercato have claimed that Antonio Conte would consider an offer to return to Juventus next summer.
Conte’s current contract at Tottenham runs out at the end of the season but the North London club have an option to extend his deal by another 12 months (The Athletic).
Italian journalist Paolo Bargiggia claimed earlier this week that Juventus could look to replace Massimiliano Allegri with Conte at the end of the 2022/23 season.
The journalist stated that the 53-year-old cannot ‘wait to return’ to the Allianz Stadium, which is why he is not renewing his contract with Spurs.
CalcioMercato have now offered an update on Allegri’s future and Juve’s pursuit of Conte. The publication claims that the current Juve boss is not in any immediate danger of being sacked.
However, should the situation worsen from now until the World Cup, it is asserted that the Old Lady could decide to part ways with the 55-year-old.
The report explains that should Allegri be sacked, Juve could appoint an interim head coach until the end of the season and make a move for Conte in the summer.
CalcioMercato add that although the Spurs boss is happy in London, he would ‘do more than reflect’ if the Serie A giants come calling.
Spurs Web Opinion
In some of his recent interviews, Conte has expressed a desire to build a long-term project at Spurs as Klopp has done at Liverpool. So, I do think that the 53-year-old will be happy to stay at Tottenham as long as the Lilwhites back his vision.
Besides, he has already proven himself in Serie A and trying to win the Premier League with Spurs (over the long run) would certainly be the biggest achievement of his career. I am not sure if he would be as excited about the idea of returning to Juve, as the Italian press seem to suggest.
