Conte shrugs off reports linking him with PSG

There has been speculation over Conte’s future since last summer

Antonio Conte has again dismissed speculation about his future, this time after being linked with Paris St-Germain.

Amid reports he could be replaced as Chelsea boss at the end of the season, or perhaps sooner, Conte has been linked with a number of potential jobs, including a return to his previous role as Italy coach.

Conte, who has 18 months left on his contract at Stamford Bridge, recently denied suggestions he was set to discuss the possibility of becoming Italy boss again, insisting he plans to stay at Chelsea.

And it was a similar story on Friday afternoon when he was asked about PSG.

Conte said: “It is very strange that from the start of the season I have to read or listen to a lot of news about my job and about the club.

“I think I have already answered this question. Nothing has changed.”

Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante seems set to return against Crystal Palace on Saturday but Ross Barkley is still not fit enough to play.
