Former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte would reportedly reject the opportunity to become Newcastle United manager following the Magpies’ takeover.
Conte has been out of the game since departing Inter at the end of their title-winning campaign last term, and the Italian was originally reported to be the favourite to take over in the North East..
The report adds that Conte is not interested in joining the long-term project at Newcastle, but his head could be turned if the Magpies’ silverware ambitions come to fruition in the coming years.
Conte has won the Premier League, FA Cup and four Serie A titles during his managerial career, while Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard have also been linked with the Newcastle job.
