Juventus boss Antonio Conte has rejected the interest of Ligue 1 side AS Monaco and Premier League giants Manchester United.
Monaco is looking for a replacement to Claudio Ranieri, who has not lived up to Russian oligarch Dmitry Yevgenyevich Rybolovlev, who according to Panorama’s Nicolo Schira, wants Conte to take the helm of his side next season. The potential offer was reported to be a three year deal boasting €5 million base salary. Included in that, a €100 million budget reserved for further construction of the squad.
Rybolovlev, has high ambitions for his luxurious side that include conquering Ligue 1 and making a run in the Champions League next year, but Conte seems uninterested in abandoning ship just yet.
The Bianconeri general has plans to stay at least for one more season, and is wanting to continue his overhaul of the Italian giants into next season. He is very attached to Juventus and would only leave the club for a European giant, something he doesn’t consider Monaco at this moment in time. Plus, Conte’s goal is to send Juve deeper into the Champions League next season, he is not ready to give up on that as well as a fourth Scudetto yet.
In addition, Schira reported that Conte’s dream Mercato would include the acquisitions of Mandzukic from Bayern Munich and Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina, difficult transfers to reach deals on, however. Lastly, he wants to change his formation next season to a 4-3-3. Which would suit his potential new players very fashionably.
