Conte guided Italy to a successful qualification run for the Euro 2016 during which they were unbeaten and will now have to play  Belgium, Republic of Ireland and Sweden in their Group E games.

There had also been earlier unconfirmed reports that Diego Simoene had agreed to join Chelsea in a deal worth £9.35m a year.
