Conte casts fresh doubt over Juventus future

Antonio Conte cannot guarantee staying with Juventus. The Italian has been linked with Real Madrid and Chelsea this season.

"The future... Everything that has happened in these two years is down to the planning done by me and the club. We left absolutely nothing to chance.

"Having said that, it's only right that at the end of every season it's right to sit down and confront our viewpoints. We will evaluate every situation to understand what we can do out of respect for the fans, the club, the players and for me.

"Conte the man wants to stay 100 per cent at Juventus. Then there is Conte the professional who, out of respect for the fans, the club and himself, has to get a clear idea of the whole situation.

"The professional needs to look at himself and understand, seeing as we have come from two extraordinary years, how to keep raising that bar. I never thought about money, which I proved in the past at Bari and Atalanta. That is totally irrelevant to me.

"As for the rest... We are in early May and are fortunate enough to be in a position where we can play out next season. Anyone who thinks we do that in January or February is kidding themselves. I don't think there will be a disconnect between the professional and the man, or at least I hope not."
