Chelsea boss Conte drops exit hint amid AC Milan links

By Oliver Fisher -

Reported AC Milan managerial target Antonio Conte has dropped another hint that he could be set to leave Chelsea.

Reports earlier in the week suggested that Roman Abramovich has made up his mind to let Conte return to Italy in the summer, with Max Allegri targeted as a possible replacement.

Asked if he would extend his contract with Chelsea, Conte added: “In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away.”

He added: “For the manager of this club it’s normal to have this type of situation, also if you won last season the league and you reached the final in the FA Cup. This is the history of this club for the manager.

“I have a lot of experience to deal with this type of situation. (But) there is something strange if, after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me for another coach. I think in other clubs this doesn’t happen.”
