Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says he will not take a new job until June amid interest from Real Madrid.
The 49-year-old is seen as Florentino Perez’s top choice to replace Julen Lopetegui at the Bernabeu helm.
But despite the interest, Conte says he wants to start fresh for the 2019/20 campaign.
“Real Madrid? As I see it, it is better to wait until the end of the season than to take a train running now,” said Conte.
“I want to wait for June and start again with a new project. In three months I could change my mind and deny everything, but I’ve always thought of it this way.”
On a return to Juventus, Conte that he was not aiming to replace Max Allegri, but admitted a return to Italy would be the easiest option for him.
“If I think about the fact that I could train Ronaldo? No, I do not think about it,” Conte added. “I’m happy with the players I’ve trained and the things I’ve won. The club continues to grow and is doing a great job at the business level, with huge purchases and a great deal for Allegri.
“Of course, I am Italian and I like to live and train in Italy, obviously, at the moment there is an incredible dominance of Juventus, but the pursuers are they are strengthening year after year “.
