Antonio Conte’s agent is set to meet representatives of PSG in Paris next week, according to L’Equipe.
The French paper are one of the best placed sources in the country, and beyond their credentials, it’s just a move that makes sense for all parties.
Chelsea are happy to lose the coach who has made his position untenable through his constant whinging, while Conte is happy to get out of a club who he feels don’t meet his ambition.
Meanwhile Paris, smarting from their exit from the Champions League against Real Madrid, are ready to go all out to land a top coach who will help them take the next step in the competition.
It’s a real shame that things have worked out this way for Antonio at the Bridge, and we sincerely hope we don’t come up against him in the Champions League anytime soon.
Luis Enrique is among the favourites to replace him.
