Conte to sign Juventus contract extension until 2015 - report

The Serie A leaders are very satisfied with their head coach's work and are hopeful of holding on the former Italy international for several more seasons
Antonio Conte will sign a new deal with Juventus until the summer of 2015 in the upcoming weeks, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

Conte's current contract with the Bianconeri is due to expire at the end of the 2012-13 campaign, but general director Giuseppe Marotta has already stressed earlier this month that Conte's contract extension is a mere formality.

The 42-year-old trainer is expected to sign a two-year extension to his current deal, and will reportedly earn €3 million per year under the terms of his new contract.

Conte left Siena for Juventus in the summer of 2011 as he replaced Luigi Delneri at the helms in Turin.

The young coach has since guided the Old Lady to the final of the Coppa Italia, while they are still unbeaten in Serie A and have a one-point lead over second-placed AC Milan in the table.
