According to Sky Sports sources, former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is refusing to meet with officials from the London club and is instead going down the route of taking them to court. Conte believes that he should’ve been paid what he was contractually owed in the wake of his sacking from his position at Stamford Bridge, with his lawyers working on two separate cases that could take up a lot of resources and time for the Blues.
Recent reports suggested that Conte is believed to be asking for around £8.7 million in damages as well as the remainder of his yearly salary, and in total, that would take his ‘asking price’ of sorts up to £20 million. While it seems unlikely that he’ll end up with that sum it doesn’t seem like he’s willing to back down, especially now that he’s rejected the chance to become Real Madrid’s new manager after Julen Lopetegui.
