    He doesn't strike me as someone who needs to feel wanted. More as someone who has a very particular philosophy and expects everyone else pull in the same direction, because he knows his philosophy yields results and he has proven it over and over again. And also as someone who is not content to steal a living by getting paid a king's ransom, if he is not delivering results, which is very refreshing to see. If he is backed and his antics don't turn off the players (and I bet, if we're winning things, they won't), I can see him being around for another 3-4 years. And who knows, maybe he mellows down a bit as he gets older and the antics become a non-issue.

    Long road ahead to see how things pan out, but definitely an exciting one. Who woulda thunk it 7 months ago!

    In other news, water is wet. I mean, after the cash infusion we all knew he wasn't going anywhere. Rags just looking for something to make a story out of.

    The only slight worry was if psg came in and offered him a stupid amount as they did with mbappe.

    For some reason I don't think PSG are a team that Conte would entertain. The type of control he wants would probably not be afforded to him there.

    This .. can you imagine the "well, we would need to consult Mbappe on the players you plan to buy/sell" conversation with Conte?

    I feel a bit silly saying it but if we got 3-4 years out of him I think we'd have a league title under our belts come the end of it...

    Seems odd to fly all the way to Turin for a chat, when they've had offices next door to each other for the past 7 months

    Conte took off after the last game. Levy paratici and lewis probably had a meeting deciding how we go forward now we're in the champions league. Probably decided the transfer budget and authorised the £150m cash injection.

    Now paratici and conte can finalise what our next steps are. Make calls, talk to players, clubs, while catching a few rays and drink some wine.

    Agreed.

    In addition to being Italian Conte's family still lives in Italy I believe. Life of a football manager at this level doesn't have much time for family or breaks. Only natural for him to want to go back to Italy for a bit when he has the chance.

    Seems a decent gesture to have the meeting in Italy, make things easier on Conte. Probably not much of a hardship on Paratici either.

    Flight on a private jet plus lovely food and drink isn't too onerous either.

    Conte is not coming back. He opened a bike shop in DC. Next.
