“Antonioooo”, sing the Chelsea fans by the bar in the Transfer Tavern.
They have been chanting his name repeatedly since he delivered the Premier League title to Stamford Bridge for the fifth time on Friday night.
However, there is also a widespread concern among Chelsea fans that their animated, popular gaffer might be tempted to leave this summer and return to Italy.
Conte has been given a bumper offer by Inter Milan, who are desperate to land his services.
But, according to The Mirror on Sunday, Antonio Conte will reject that offer to remain as Chelsea manager.
This news was greeted with another rapturous chorus of the “Antonio” song from the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern.
It is clear that the former Italy manager is a fans’ favourite at Chelsea and the fans are excited to see where he can take them next.
This report suggests that Conte will receive an improved contract at Chelsea for winning the title and he will be earning £13m per year.
That is four times more than he was previously earning with the Blues.
Chelsea’s focus will now be on the upcoming FA Cup final against Arsenal and talks with Conte will wait until after that.
