Antonio Conte is forbidden from joining another Serie A club until January after leaving Inter, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Corriere dello Sport’s print edition said Conte would also have to repay part of his payoff from Inter if he were appointed by another European club this summer.
Inter wanted to get a deal with Conte sorted as quickly as possible, the Rome-based paper explained, because they needed time to begin planning for next season.
Simone Inzaghi will replace Conte at the helm of the Nerazzurri, having agreed a two-year deal as per multiple reports in Italy.
Conte is likely to find new employment before long because he has interest from Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur, the report continued.
His departure from Inter has created unease among supporters, the report argued, after Conte decided he couldn’t accept Suning’s plans to cut costs and potentially sell key players.
Inter need a profit of around €90 million in the summer transfer window, which will be very difficult to achieve without selling at least one of their stars.
