INSIDER: Inter Milan would never be so obvious meeting Conte

Talk of Antonio Conte holding talks with Inter Milan last week have been dismissed.

The former Chelsea boss was spotted at the club's HQ sparking speculation that he was meeting with Inter officials about succeeding Luciano Spalletti as coach.

But Sky Italia's transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio insists: "To think that Inter can meet Conte in Turin is not feasible. If you want to meet Conte, you do it in London, where he still has a house, or in Paris, where he has a hidden residence.

"As far as I know, Conte was on Via Monte Napoleone to buy a sofa for his wife.

"He could be a replacement if Spalletti leaves, I think it would be normal. A person like him on the market ... all the big clubs would like him."
