Conte: Coaching Juventus is a dream

The Bianconeri boss insists there is no reason for him to leave following their latest Scudetto triumph and is planning to hold talks over his future.
Antonio Conte has admitted that he has realized "a dream" by taking charge of Juventus in the wake of the side's Serie A title success.

The Old Lady beat Palermo 1-0 on Sunday to defend the Scudetto in convincing style, having accumulated a 14-point lead over Napoli, but the coach has been linked with a summer exit following reports that he and the club are at an impasse over the organization's transfer policy.

Nonetheless, Conte is ready to hold talks with the Bianconeri hierarchy over their future plans after confessing his love for the reigning Italian champions and has outlined his ambitions of launching another assault on the Champions League next season.

"The future? I'm feeling great at Juventus and at the place where I always hoped to be when I started coaching," Conte told Sky Sport Italia. "My dream was to coach Juventus when I was a player here and to win, especially after only two seasons, is exceptional.

"It's right to sit down with the club in a serene way, I will always be grateful to [president] Andrea Agnelli. I will always have a debt towards him and I hope that all matters regarding the club remain transparent.

"I want everything for the good of the club. Raising the bar means that we still have to fight for the Scudetto, but also improve our progress in Europe.

"Fans are calling for the Champions League, but we must be realistic and figure out where we can go."
