Conte Becomes Newcastle’s ‘Top Priority’


Former Chelsea and Inter boss Antonio Conte is the early favourite to succeed Steve Bruce in the Newcastle United hotseat.


It follows the completion of the club’s Saudi Arabian-backed takeover from Mike Ashley, making the Magpies one of the richest clubs in the world.


The position of Bruce appears increasingly uncertain with the new ownership keen to take the club in a new direction with a new boss among the proposed alterations.


The outstanding candidate to succeed Bruce would be Conte, who has been out of work since leaving Inter at the end of last season, just weeks after he guided the club to their first Serie A title since 2010.


Antonio Conte left Inter in the summer after guiding them to the Serie A title.


Conte is open to a return to the Premier League – where he managed Chelsea between 2016 and 2018 – with the North-East club monitoring his situation.
