Antonio Conte promised megastar this summer - if he leaves Chelsea
Italian giants Inter will back Antonio Conte in the transfer window by signing Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez if he moves to the San Siro this summer, per Metro.
Speculation over the Italian’s future at Stamford Bridge refuses to go away, despite him leading the Blues to the brink of a second Premier League in three years in his debut, having replaced Jose Mourinho as full-time boss in the summer.

Inter are reportedly willing to pay Conte a staggering £13million-per-year to lure him back to his homeland, and now they are using the promise of Sanchez to sweeten the deal.
The Nerazzurri are keen to return to former glories having struggled over the last few years, and this double swoop would certainly give them a great chance.
Sanchez’s own future at Arsenal is under a cloud of doubt. The 28-year-old Chilean’s contract runs out in 2018 and there are few signs of him signing a new deal, with rumours of him being unhappy in North London rife.
Despite that, he has scored 18 goals this season, but has attracted interest from a number of clubs. The former Barcelona man is no stranger to Serie A after playing for Udinese.
