Reports – Napoli eye Antonio Conte as replacement for Man City-bound Rafa Benitez

first_imgNapoli could make a shock move to bring Italy coach Antonio Conte to the club next season – paving the way for Rafa Benitez to take charge of Manchester City, according to reports in Italy.Benitez is out of contract with Napoli in the summer and seems unlikely to stay with the Serie A club.The former Liverpool coach has been strongly linked with the managerial post at City as speculation continues to suggest that Manuel Pellegrini will leave during the summer following a poor season at the Etihad.Sky Italia claims Conte is a leading candidate to replace Benitez and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis would be prepared to let him keep his position as Italy coach.But it remains to be seen if the Italian Football Federation would allow Conte to take up both roles and take charge of the national side on a part time basis.West Ham have also been linked with Benitez as uncertainty continues to surround the future of Sam Allardyce, but it seems more likely he would take charge of City if he does make a return to the Premier League.
