Huge! Chelsea To Reward Conte’s Excellent Season With a Contract Extension

Antonio Conte’s debut season in the Premier League is going better than planned as his Chelsea side are running away with the Premier League title, having opened up a 8 point gap at the top of the table, with just 13 games to go.

They are also active in the FA Cup, giving Conte another shot at silverware and are sure to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Keeping the struggles of the other team aside, Chelsea, have done extremely well this season and Antonio Conte’s summer signings have a lot to do with it.

The likes of Marcos Alonso, David Luiz and more importantly N Golo Kante, have all played major roles in this title run in for the Blues and their performances might reward the manager in the upcoming days.

According to a story from Transfer Market Web, Chelsea are now ready to offer Antonio Conte a new bumper deal to keep him at the club for years to come.

Roman Abramovich, the owner of the Stamford Bridge outfit, is known to not place his faith in managers, constantly changing them, but he will be thrilled by the way Antonio Conte has started his life in London.

The former Juventus manager has lifted the Blues from 10th place in the previous season to the top this season and the fans, pundits and the owners of the club are in unison that he should be offered an extension on his current contract.

There are a few European clubs who are looking for top class managers to replace their current gaffers in the summer and Chelsea want to act fast and want to tie Conte with the club for the long term.

The 47-year old is currently contracted with the club till 2019, as he signed a 3-year contract at the start of the season.

And the report claims that he has already put pen to paper on another 3-year contract on improved wages.

This new contract will keep Conte at the club till 2020, and is a 1-year extension on his original contract with the club.

The manager started the season in decent fashion but back to back losses to Liverpool and Arsenal saw Conte change his system, turning Chelsea into an astonishingly well-drilled side.

Ever since, Chelsea have lost to Tottenham Hotspur, their local rivals and have drawn just 4 games in all competitions and they will hope that he can keep up with the good work for years to come.
