Antonio Conte has left the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza by Mutual consent, with Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi likely to replace him as head coach of the Serie A winners.
Conte has agreed a deal with the clubs owners which will see paid €7m (£6m) for the last year of his deal.
The former Juventus and Chelsea boss guided Inter to their first Serie A title in over a decade, however he was involved in a dispute with La Beneamata’s owners after they suggested a downsizing of his Internazionale squad.
Inter chairman Steven Zhang reportedly asked Conte to cut his wage bill by 15 to 20 per cent and quite possibly sell players worth up to £70m during this summer’s transfer window.
Zhang arrived at Inter’s headquarters to continue talks with senior staff on Wednesday morning.
Conte was keen to keep hold of up to eight players, who he sees as ‘untouchables’ which include Milan Skrinar, Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
Lukaky is happy at Inter, however Conte’s departure, coupled with the club needing to cut costs due to their financial issues, has cast doubt over his status at the club.
The club’s strategy, could include the sale of one of the club’s main players and shift the focus on developing young talent within the sides academy.
Lazio manager Inzaghi is waiting in the wings to replace Conte at the San Siro. The former Italy striker has been in charge of the Rome club since 2016 and led them to a sixth-place finish this season, finishing six points above ferocious local rivals Roma.
