Antonio Conte has denied any reports claiming he is contact with former club Juventus to replace Maurizio Sarri as manager.

Antonio Conte was not pleased to see false reports about him leaking from the Italian media today.

Over the weekend, the Nerazzurri boss was the center of discussion following his recent rant at the Inter hierarchy.

Speculation began to grow that Conte was unhappy at San Siro and could even consider calling it quits after his first season in charge of the club.

Italian outlet La Repubblica took things a step further when they posted an article claiming that the Inter boss was indeed in contact with Juventus to replace Sarri at the helm of affairs.

The 51-year-old wasn’t pleased with the false news about him and has even threatened to sue La Repubblica for posting ‘fake news’.

“Regarding the article published on Repubblica.it today,” Conte told news agency ANSA.

“I categorically deny having spoken to Juventus managers and players asking, ‘but will they fire Sarri?”.

“I will sue who wrote this article and the editor in charge of the newspaper.”

“I committed to a three-year project at Inter and as I have always done, I will work hard and fight with all my strength and with all that is in my possibilities to create a successful project.”

Questions continue to be asked about Conte at Inter but club CEO Giuseppe insists they are pleased with the Italian manager.
