Inter: no meeting between Conte and Zhang

Steven Zhang

Antonio Conte was supposed to meet Inter President Steven Zhang today, but according to Sky Sport, the summit will take place in the coming days.

Inter won their first Serie A title in 11 years in Conte's second season in charge.

The contract of the Italian coach expires in 2022, but according to several reports in Italy, he could leave with one year remaining in his contract if the owner won't give him enough guarantees about the future.

According to Sky Sport, the meeting that was supposed to take place today did not happen.

Steven Zhang and Inter directors arrived at the club's headquarters, but Conte never showed up, which means the meeting is likely to take place in the coming days.

Conte wants to continue with Inter, but believes the top players mustn't leave.

His fate is strictly linked with Suning’s plans for the future and, according to Sky Sport, Inter directors are also waiting for the meeting with Zhang to decide on their own futures.

Like any other European club, the Serie A champions are facing financial issues due to the impact of the COVID pandemic.

Last week, Suning officially completed a financing operation for €275m from Oaktree Capital, which will help the owners to keep the club running.
