Antonio Conte is pushing for greater powers at Juventus.

Tuttosport says Conte is speaking to the Juve board about a manager role in the guise of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

It would mean the coach having total control on transfer policy, along with the hiring and firing of coaching staff at all levels.

The development could lead to the watering down of responsibilities of GM Beppe Marotta and sporting director Fabio Paratici.
