AS Roma Hold Initial Talks With Antonio Conte To Be Their Manager

Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has emerged as the frontrunner to be the next AS Roma coach if reports are to be believed.

The Italian has been without a job since leaving Chelsea last summer and could be confirmed as the next Roma manager very soon. Another Italian Claudio Ranieri has been managing the club as a caretaker manager and is poised to leave the club after the ongoing season.

Conte’s success in the Premier League speaks for his management skills and it’s only a matter of a few days before he becomes the manager of the Giallorossi. An offer of €9.5m per season has been tabled by the Roman club although it is a bit less than the €11m he was getting at the Stamford Bridge.

Current Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri was the first choice to replace Eusebio Di Francesco at the club. Sarri’s future is hanging over a thread as the manager could lose his job if the Blues fail to grab a place in the top four.

Roma hierarchy is also in the talks with Torino’s Gianluca Petrachi to hire him as the club’s new sporting director. Petrachi happens to be a very close friend of Conte and it could persuade the Italian to say yes to the job.
