Conte open to possible Juventus reunion

According to the Daily Mail, Conte is 'open' to returning to a team he successfully led to success, although he still has a contract with Tottenham.

The 53-year-old led the Old Lady to three successive Serie A titles between 2011-2014. Since then, he has managed the Italian national team, Inter Milan and currently Tottenham.

Juve have won just twice this season from seven games, and there's increased pressure on current manager Allegri, with fans gunning for his head.

Meanwhile, Conte's Spurs have started impressively in the Premier League and have been touted to finish in Champions League places. With his side presently enjoying a good run, it is intriguing to know if the Italian will leave to join a turbulent side in Juve.

Furthermore, Conte has previously reiterated that he is committed to staying at Spurs in the long run if the progress he's overseen so far continues.

For sure, we want to continue to improve, to build something important for this club.
If the idea continues to be in this way, there will be zero problems to continue my life in Tottenham because I stay well and I like this group of players and I have a good relationship with Daniel Levy.

Conte has been spotted in Turin this week, something that has increased rumours about a possible return to his former club.

Sports Brief earlier reported on Conte blasting his Tottenham team after suffering an embarrassing last-minute capitulation in the Champions League against Portuguese side Sporting CP.

Conte has a patchy record in Europe's premier competition. He has 13 wins, 12 defeats and 11 draws. His teams, like Juventus and Inter Milan, fell short in the competition on many occasions.
