Jamie Redknapp believes that Antonio Conte can’t wait to leave Chelsea FC this summer.

Conte has found his future to be a relentless source of speculation in recent months amid suggestions that he is not happy at Stamford Bridge.
It remains to be seen whether Conte will remain in charge for the final year of his contract or if Chelsea FC will look to replace the Italian manager this summer.
However, former Liverpool FC midfielder Redknapp seems to feel that Conte’s days at Stamford Bridge are indeed numbered.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “I’d be amazed to see Conte on the touchline next season. He looks like he wants to get away.”
Chelsea FC ended up in fifth place in the Premier League this season as they missed out on Champions League qualification.
The west London side won the Premier League title in Conte’s first campaign in charge of the the club but struggled to produce consistent form in the top flight this season.
Conte was brought in as the club’s new manager back in the summer of 2016 following Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
