Conte to 'confront' Juventus in the summer

The Italian has delayed talks over prolonging his stay in charge until the end of the campaign
Juventus coach Antonio Conte has revealed he will "confront" the club regarding his future during the summer.

The 43-year-old has been a complete success since taking over the Turin giants in 2011, guiding them to the Champions League quarter-finals and within touching distance of a successive Scudetto this season.

However, the in-demand trainer fears the current side have arrived at an impasse in terms of attaining subsequent progress, and is keen to meet with directors in order to get the Bianconeri's ascent rolling again.

"All our results are the result of mine and the club's planning," Conte told assembled reporters at a press conference. "Having said that, it is fitting to all sit down at a table at the end of the season.

"These are normal situations that will allow us to plan what happens next. I don't know how much we've raised the bar after a year in which we've secured all our objectives. It is right to confront each other to try and raise it higher again.

"In my career, I have never decided on a job for the money, I would like to make that clear. I, as a person, want to stay at Juventus 100 per cent. But as a professional, it is fair to all to understand and take stock of everything."

Despite becoming the undisputed dominant force in Serie A, the former club captain is believed to be looking for new signings capable of taking Juve to the next level, in a bid to challenge for the Champions League.

The Bianconeri need only a point against Palermo on Sunday to retain their league crown.
