Report: PSG open talks with Chelsea boss Conte’s representatives

Paris Saint Germain are set to open to open talks with representatives of Chelsea manager Antonio Conte about becoming their manager next summer according to reports.

According to the Guardian the French sides Qatari owners will not be renewing their current coach Unai Emery’s contract when it expires this summer.

PSG appointed Emery in the hope that his three consecutive Europa League successes with Sevilla would help them each their main target of winning the Champions League. But, despite investing heavily in some of the worlds best players like Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the Ligue Un Champions have exited Europe’s most prestigious competition at the last 16 stage in the last two seasons.

Conte had a superb first year at Chelsea guiding an unfancied Blues side to the Premier League title. However, his relationship with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy has turned sour during this campaign after a public spat over transfer policy.

The former Juventus coach also has the option of taking back his old job as Italian national team coach, but the 48-year-old is said to be keen on remaining in club management, and he would certainly have no issues in terms of financial backing if he does move to the Parc De Princes.

Ironically, Chelsea look set to appoint Luis Enrique as their new coach, even though it had emerged earlier this week that the former Barcelona coach had originally been PSG’s first choice to takeover from Emery.
