Antonio Conte's Agent Believes The Italian Will Be At Chelsea, Next Season

Despite almost every report over the last month or so stating otherwise, Antonio Conte could actually still be the manager of Chelsea, next season.

After a poor showing in this season's Premier League, where the Blues have failed to offer any sort of adequate defence of their league title crown, currently sitting in fourth place, 19 points behind leaders Manchester City, Conte's future has been brought into question.

The Italian has reportedly been unhappy since last summer with the lack of support offered to him by the Chelsea board, who he believes have failed to deliver him the players he wanted in the transfer market, meaning the Italian has had to settle for second string targets a lot of the time.

Recent heavy defeats to Bournemouth and Watford saw the former Juventus and Italy boss come under increasing scrutiny, with former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique being lined up as his replacement at Stamford Bridge.

However, despite Conte's future reportedly lying back in Italy, with his old job as national team manager still up for grabs, the former Juventus boss' agent believes his client will in fact still be in the dugout at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to Rai Sport, Federico Pastorello said, "Conte has already been through that experience and prefers to work with the squad on a daily basis.

"I see him at Chelsea next year, as he has a contract valid for another season-and-a-half and doesn't like to leave things unfinished."

Chelsea have enjoyed a return to form, this week, having seen off West Bromwich Albion 3-0 in the Premier League on Monday night before advancing to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a 4-0 home defeat of Hull City, last night.

It's momentum that is coming just at the right time, with a hellish schedule approaching, including a Champions League double header with Barcelona and away trips to Manchester United and Manchester City.

Four positive results in those games could see Pastorello's prediction come true, next season.
