Chelsea fans, we’ve some potential good news about the future of your manager.
Blues boss Antonio Conte, who saw his side lose 2-1 to Crystal Palace this afternoon, may have just dropped a big hint over his future with the club.
As reported by the Telegraph, Conte confirmed that his wife and daughter have now relocated to England, which may just quash the rumours surrounding the Italian’s potential return to his home country.
The news outlet say that there have been rumours surrounding the Italian’s potential departure from the west London side, with Conte often saying how much we wants to return to his homeland.
However following this news, it seems as if Chelsea can now be at ease over their manager’s future.
Since his move to England from Italy at the start of last season, Conte has turned Chelsea into one of the most feared teams in Europe.
His first season in the Premier League saw the Blues win their fifth league title with an astonishing 93 points, a campaign that included his side winning a ridiculously impressive 13 games in a row.

However this season, the story is a little bit different for the former Juventus boss.
The reigning Premier League champions currently sit nine points behind league leaders Man City following today’s result, and with the news that midfield general N’Golo Kante has suffered an injury to his thigh, it remains to be seen whether Chelsea will mount a serious challenge for the title this season.
One thing Chelsea have lacked ever since Roman Abramovich took over the club in 2003 is consistency, as the Blues has had eight different managers since the Russian took over, however following this news, it seems as if that number will stay the same for a least a few more years.
Chelsea fans, you can breath a sigh of relief for now.
