By mutual consent, Antonio Conte has bid farewell to Inter Milan, who’s likely to be replaced with Simone Inzaghi as head coach of the Serie A Championships.
The deal Conte has agreed on with the club’s owners will have him paid £6M (€7M) for the last year of his contract.
The previous Chelsea head led Inter to win their first Serie A title after 11 years, however, he was involved in an argument with the club’s owners after they suggested a downsize of his team.
Steven Zhang Inter’s chairman presumably asked of Conte to cut his salary bill by 15-20% as well as potentially sell players that are worth up to £70M this summer.
Zhang came to Inter’s headquarters on Wednesday morning to carry on with discussions with senior staff.
“FC Internazionale Milano announces that it has reached an agreement for the consensual termination of the contract with the coach Antonio Conte.
“The whole club would like to thank Antonio for the extraordinary work he has done, which culminated in winning the 19th Scudetto. Antonio Conte will remain forever in the history of our club,” read a club statement.
