Napoli in final stages of negotiations with Antonio Conte


Napoli are intensifying their efforts to secure Antonio Conte as their new head coach, following the departure of Francesco Calzona. The club are determined to finalize an agreement with Conte, who has emerged as the frontrunner for the position, gaining favor with President Aurelio De Laurentiis and the club’s management.

Sky Sport Italia report that Napoli’s new sporting director, Giovanni Manna, continued discussions with the former Juventus and Inter manager in recent days in a bid to come to an agreement. According to their report, the talks have been progressing steadily, with both parties working to reach a definitive agreement.

Sky suggest that Napoli are pushing hard to secure Conte’s services, regardless of the developments in the contract renewal talks between Gian Piero Gasperini and Atalanta. The club is determined to move forward and build a strong foundation for the future under Conte’s leadership.

Conte, known for his successful stints at Juventus and Inter, is reportedly enthusiastic about Napoli’s project and the opportunity to revitalize the team. Unlike previous negotiations with other high-profile managers, Conte has not made extravagant demands, which has facilitated the discussions.

The upcoming days will be crucial as Napoli aims to finalize the deal. President De Laurentiis is expected to play a significant role in the concluding stages of the negotiations, meanwhile, there have been no recent contacts with Stefano Pioli, indicating that Napoli are fully committed to securing Conte as their new head coach.
