According to the latest reports, Antonio Conte has enquired about the possibility of current Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri continuing at the helm beyond this season.

The current Inter Milan manager has reportedly spoken with people from his former club to find out about the current situation and expressed his interest in returning to Turin.

The report further claims that Pablo Nedved and Fabio Paratici wanted Conte to become the manager of Juventus after last season. However, that plan was vetoed by the club ownership. As it stands, they still haven't changed their mind about Conte.

Conte is looking to leave Inter Milan after enraging the club's management by accusing them of providing the team with no protection from the media.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the standout performer for Juventus as they clinched a ninth successive Scudetto. Despite being 35-years-old, Ronaldo has remained focussed and has shown no signs of fading into irrelevance so far.

Now the former Real Madrid man has hinted at extending his Juventus stay. Several reports had claimed in between that Ronaldo might be looking for a new challenge after supposedly having run-ins with the manager Maurizio Sarri.

But now Ronaldo has seemingly put all such rumours to bed by posting a photo on Instagram where he says,

"Happy to win the last two of the nine consecutive Serie A titles for Juventus!
"It seems easy but it isn't! Year after year with talent, dedication and hard work you can achieve your goals and be better than before! Let's go for my third."
