Italy name Chelsea manager Conte as number one choice to replace Ventura

Chelsea contact Carlo Ancelotti as replacement for Antonio Conte

Conte's future at Stamford Bridge has become the subject of speculation this season, with the former Juventus boss tipped as a possible replacement for Vincenzo Montella at AC Milan.

Conte earned huge praise during his two-year stint at Italy head coach when he led a limited Azzurri side to the quarter-finals of the European Championship in the summer of 2016.

One couldn't ignore the team's lack of inventiveness, and said: "Italy fell apart without footballing mastermind Antonio Conte, that's just facts".

According to The Mirror, Conte will be sent an SOS call to get his national side back on track, a little over a year after leaving the job to take charge at Chelsea.

"We would love to have him back in Italy, of course, because he is a great coach".

There have been rumours of discontent behind the scenes at Chelsea with suggestions that he could leave the club at the end of the season but Moggi stressed that Conte is not going to return to the Italy job.

Another wrote: "Ventura is the worst Italian coach I have ever seen in my life, an absolute disgrace to the national team. I hope he will have a great period with Chelsea and then maybe one day come back", added del Piero.

Italy missed the World Cup for the first time since 1958 after a 1-0 aggregate loss to Sweden in their play-off. "He's incredible for that, so Ventura has real options", he added.

"There is no forward who is not playing well but the problem is maybe mentality".
