Antonio Conte has reportedly reached an agreement with Napoli to become their new first team manager on a three-year contract from the next season onwards. Notably, the 54-year-old was heavily linked with a move to the Italian clubs Napoli and AC Milan before agreeing to make his managerial return with the Naples-based club.

The last managerial stint for Antonio Conte was at the Premier League club, Tottenham, ending with mutual consent in March 2023 after they exited the FA Cup and UEFA Champions League within weeks. Although he didn’t manage a football team for a year, he was one of the top choices for Napoli to replace Francesco Calzona, along with names like Stefano Pioli and Vincenzo Italiano.

The Italian broadcaster RAI reported via Calcio Napoli 24 about Napoli reaching an agreement with Antonio Conte to manage the club after a breakthrough in negotiations about the financial side of things. It was previously reported that Antonio Conte was stalling an offer from Napoli, but this isn’t the case anymore.

The three-year contract between Antonio Conte and Napoli is worth £5.56m per season, and the Italian has also given a green signal to the club to sign their targeted players.

Moreover, in his illustrious managerial career, apart from taking the reigns of the Italian football team, Antonio Conte won the Serie A with Juventus and Inter Milan. He also took Chelsea to Premier League glory in the 2016-17 season, which was the last such triumph for the English club in their domestic competition.
