Juventus GM Marotta adamant Conte will stay

Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta insists coach Antonio Conte will sign a new deal.

Juve are keen to offer Conte a long-term deal with the 44-year-old reportedly attracting interest from top clubs abroad.

"There are no problems or a distance between us," Marotta said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "The relationship between Conte, the club, president (Andrea) Agnelli and the board is optimum.

"Right now we are all focused on what would be an historic victory, that is to win our third-straight scudetto.

"We have decided to leave to one side talks of the future and we will deal with that further ahead well aware that we have a great coach with us."
