PSG are closely monitoring Antonio Conte’s situation at Chelsea with the French club keen to strike up a deal to bring the Italian to France.
The Daily Star have reported that PSG owners are looking to strike up a deal with Conte and his representatives to bring him to the French capital as soon as his time at Chelsea is up.
Conte has had a mixed start to the season at Chelsea with the Blues sitting nine points behind league leaders Man City already. The Italian’s side have lost their last two Premier League fixtures and gifted Crystal Palace not only their first goal of the season but also their first points of the season as they slipped to a 2-1 loss at Selhurst Park on Saturday in embarrassing fashion.
The woes of Conte continued into Europe this week as he was heavily criticized following Chelsea’s 3-3 draw against Roma at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night after throwing away a lead.
The Italian became a god amongst English football last season after spectacularly winning the league in his first season. Conte introduced the 3-5-2 system to the Premier League which had yet to be deployed in such an effective style that Chelsea utilized it last year in their title winning campaign. The style of play has since been imitated by the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham.
However, if ever you wanted an example of how brutal English football can be it is the rise and fall of the Italian boss himself. It appeared he could do no wrong at the the back end of last season but now his future at Stamford Bridge hangs in the balance.
PSG could well be his next adventure if he is shown the exit door at Chelsea anytime soon.
