Antonio Conte insists he is very happy at Chelsea.

The former Italy and Juventus head coach took over the reins of the Premier League club last summer after Chelsea finished in tenth place in the table following a dismal defence of their top-flight crown.

The west London side have been transformed under the Italian coach as Chelsea look to secure their second title in three seasons with seven games to go in the 2016-17 Premier League season.

Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation back in September and the Blues haven’t looked back since a 3-0 loss to Arsenal with a run of two defeats in 24 games in the English top flight.

Inter Milan have been linked with a move to appoint Conte as their new manager following the Italian coach’s incredible impact at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have reportedly opened contract negotiations with Conte over a new contract ahead of the conclusion of the current campaign.

Speaking at his pre-match media conference, Conte gave an encouraging update on his future at the Premier League leaders.

“”I stay here. I’m very happy to stay here,” Conte said.

“This is the most important thing. I don’t like when I listen to other persons talking about me.

“I don’t know why, but I think it’s normal to try to involve my name in this situation.

“I worked in Italy. They want to come back for me in Italy.

“I have two more years of contract with Chelsea. This is the truth.”
