And the Blues are keen to reward Conte with a mammoth new deal.
There were rumors that Conte was considering leaving Stamford Bridge, after tension arose between the Italian and the Chelsea front office following his dismissal of Diego Costa.
But, the 47-year-old is still expected to put pen to paper and become the club’s highest paid manager in their history with a salary in the region of £10m-a-year.
The Italian was announced as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor last April.
Conte will be handed a £200m war chest to upgrade his squad in preparation for Champions League football next season.
The Belgium worldwide said in an interview earlier this month that he would have to consider his future at Chelsea if the Spanish giants made an offer for him.
“Obviously winning the league is what we want most, and this award is just a bonus”.
“I’ve been here five years now and I’m so happy”.
“The club has been very important in his career”.
