PSG Eye Up Moves For Premier League Pair For Manager

As well as drawing with Arsenal in the EFL Cup and Norwich City in the FA Cup, Antonio Conte's side were held by the Gunners in their last Premier League encounter. He is a young player who had only one season he played with regularity for Marseille.

Antonio Conte is unconcerned by Jose Mourinho stating he has "contempt" for the Chelsea head coach, seemingly bringing an end to their war of words.

Mourinho seemingly extinguished the feud stating he was referencing himself with his comments but put fuel on the fire referencing Conte's four-month ban for failing to report alleged match-fixing, with Conte following that up by branding him a "little man" and stating that he would never forget his words. "We know the difficulty and for sure we want to avoid the Mourinho season with Chelsea".

Mourinho's contract at Old Trafford runs until 2019 and, despite signing a new deal just past year, Conte also only has about 18 months left on his deal at Stamford Bridge.

To much delight of PSG, Conte expressed his uncertainty as a Chelsea Manager comes next season, saying "everything is possible".

The Mail say Senior figures at the club have already started looking around for potential candidates to succeed the Italian later this year. "I don't think so", Conte said.

Conte said it must be Chelsea's decision to break his contract, suggesting he won't walk away from the job ahead of time. His team plays a brand of football more progressive than he's often given credit for, while the tactical flexibility of his 3-4-2-1 formation has influenced nearly all of the Premier League.

Apart from Allegri, the London side is also believed to be interested in Carlo Ancelotti who was sacked by Bayern Munich earlier this season. "They defend very well and with lots of players and I think in this situation a very defensive team wins the title with counter-attack goals and set-pieces goals, so I don't think they will let it slip but football is football".

"I remember with Ranieri when he [Mourinho] offended him for his English", added Conte.

The United boss infamously labeled Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger "a voyeur" when he was Chelsea manager and has exchanged a series of barbs with former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss Rafael Benitez - and the Spaniard's wife.

"I am happy and enjoying my period here".

Though unable to keep pace with runaway leaders Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, his team have performed well this season.
