All of a sudden it would appear as if Manchester United’s chance of signing Arturo Vidal and of Chelsea landing Paul Pogba is back on following the sudden resignation of Juventus manager Antonio Conte according to the Daily Star.
The 44-year-old former Italian international decided to terminate his role with the Bianconeri after just three-years in charge of the Italian giants during which time he won the Serie A championship.
He said: “I have decided to terminate my contract with Juventus.
“I have matured with time and my feelings led me to make this choice. It may be more difficult to keep winning with Juventus.
“An enormous thank you for what you have given to me as a player and as a coach. I have always been close to you. I want to say that the journey taken in recent years has been historic.”
The reference to finding in it hard to keep winning with Turin club may be a signal that they are about to sell some top players and with Manchester United actively courting Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal and Chelsea making no bones over their interest in Paul Pogba, Conte may well have seen it as a good opportunity to leave the club on a high note.
