Antonio Conte 'can't wait to leave Chelsea,' says Gianluca Vialli

Antonio Conte "can't wait to leave Chelsea" after becoming disillusioned with a lack of influence over the club's transfer policy, according to friend and former Blues boss Gianluca Vialli.

Chelsea and Conte are widely expected to part ways at the end of this season amid escalating public tensions with the club hierarchy that date back to last summer's troubled transfer window. Both the Italian Football Federation and Paris Saint-Germain have been mentioned as potential suitors.

Vialli is confident that Conte will have his pick of top jobs when he leaves Stamford Bridge, and claimed after Chelsea's damaging 3-1 home defeat to rivals Tottenham on Sunday that his departure this summer is guaranteed.

"Conte can't wait to leave Chelsea," Vialli told Sky Sport Italia in his role as a pundit on the match. "He can't stand that they sell or buy players without consulting him. The truth is, Chelsea would like a manager who is more of a club man."
