thumbnail Hello,

Giuseppe Marotta says that the club are delighted to have the coach in charge and hopes he can deliver the Europa League trophy along with a third straight Serie A title

Antonio Conte will hold talks over a contract extension at the end of the season, says Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta.

Conte is set to guide the Serie A giants to their third successive title, with his side leading second-placed Roma by eight points with five matches to play.

European success has eluded Conte in his reign at Juve so far but that could change this season, with the club set to face Benfica in the Europa League semi-finals.

The 44-year-old is committed to the Turin club until June 2015 but is anticipated be some to be the target of foreign interest beyond that, yet Marotta remains confident of Conte signing a new deal after the campaign is over.

He told Sky Sport Italia: "Conte has already told us that a renewal will be discussed at the end of the season.

"We, as a club, are fully satisfied with the work of our coach. He has a contract with us and is our leader.

"We are really proud to have Antonio with us.

"We have already spoken and, by mutual agreement, we have agreed to meet after winning something special ... whether that's the Scudetto or the Europa League or both."

Juventus can move a step closer to another Serie A success when they host relegation-threatened Bologna on Saturday.
