Time and again, Conte has expressed his views on returning back to Italy.
Claudio Ranieri joined the AS Roma after the sacking of Eusebio Di Francesco in March 2019 and since then, the club is on the look for a potential high-profile manager who can take them to top. Despite having an option of a contract extension with Claudio until 2020, the club management has shortlisted managers like Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri.
Club legend, Francesco Totti, is believed to have been in advanced talks with Antonio Conte. Totti has contacted Conte, the dream for the club.
According to La Repubblica, the former Italy manager is tempted as his priority is to return to Italy, having had a year off from coaching. AC Milan and Inter also believed to have moved for him. Conte would have larger budgets with any of the Milan clubs than Rome.
