According to Italian journalist

Fabrizio Romano


Antonio Conte



have reached an agreement to part ways after two seasons.

Despite winning first Scudetto since 2010 and ending


' stranglehold on Serie A, the manager was not happy with the prospects for future investment in the club.

The former


boss has been involved in heated talks with the club's owners Suning over the future of the team amid Inter's financial struggles and now he has decided to walk away.

Conte will leave after only two seasons, one of them a title. He will add this Scudetto to a resume that includes titles with both Juventus and Chelsea as well as a successful stint managing the Italian national side.

Inter will now have to pay him €7 million of the €12 million remaining on his contract to terminate his current deal with immediate effect.

The Nerazzurri now turn their attention to the task of replacing Conte, and Romano reports they are interested in both

Massimiliano Allegri

, the former AC Milan and Juventus manager, and

Simone Inzaghi

of Lazio as possible candidates to take over the role.
