He still has 2 and a half years remaining on his contract and has informed Chelsea officials that he does not see his long-term future with the English Champions.
"They can't quite seem to keep that level of consistency they had last season, which has been highlighted even more by Manchester City's dominance".
Reports have suggested the Italian faces the sack if the Blues lose at Watford tomorrow evening (8pm).

As we reported earlier this week, Conte has publicly stated that he intends to stay at Chelsea for the remainder of his deal, which runs for another 18 months, as opposed to walk away and take another job. It was all speculation, I suppose.
"You look at those players, Giroud is there to play as a single striker, Zappacosta wing back, Marcos Alonso wing back, David Luiz one of a back three".

Marcos Alonso has been a key player for the Blues this season but Conte wanted another left-sided player to be brought in during the January transfer window.
