The 44-year-old says he must sit down with the club and evaluate his future after picking up a third consecutive league title

Antonio Conte says will hold talks in the summer about staying at Juventus next season after securing a "historic" Serie A title.

As a result of Roma's 4-1 defeat to Catania on Sunday, the Bianconeri were confirmed champions for the third consecutive time before Monday's 1-0 win over Atalanta.

Conte praised his team for their magnificent achievements over the last few years, but hinted that he is still unsure if he will remain with the club beyond 2013-14.

"I’d call this a historic Scudetto. That's the most suitable word for what this team has done over the last three years, especially after finishing seventh twice in a row," he told reporters.

"What this team has done in Italy can't be improved upon. Those close to me know what I put into the team and what the players have put into it with me.

"We have always said, along with the club, that we’ll talk it over when the situation calms down and analyse every aspect. These have been three very intense and stressful years.

"We need to sit down, confront our opinions on matters and, in a relaxed manner, see what the situation is.

“I don’t want to say I need reassurances. I will say what I need to say with the club, so together we can evaluate what is best for Juventus. I want what is best for Juventus, in every way."

Conte was then asked if he could take a sabbatical from coaching this summer and he pressed the point that he loved the club without committing either way.

"No, I just need to talk to the club and we’ll make the necessary evaluations," he said. "I am a Juventino, I was even when I went around the country to work as a coach and learn.

"I am now that I am the Juventus coach and will be in the future. It is my family."
