The Italian walked away from negotiations with the north London club amid concerns over their long term ambitions. Nuno Espirito Santo has since been appointed the manager of Tottenham, while Carlo Ancelotti has returned to Madrid.
As part of Conte’s Inter exit, he agreed not to take on an Italian club until the end of the year, so with very few managerial options at present, the 51-year-old is biding his time before making his next move.
And Corriere della Sera reports that Conte is in talks with Sky Sport Italy over taking on punditry duties for the 2021-22 campaign.
Conte could cover Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup games on Italian TV
Sky are understood to have offered Conte a gig as a special guest pundit, with the Italian taking to the television studio for high-calibre games, including the Champions League, Premier League and big FA Cup ties.
The Italian outlet expects Conte’s next job to be in England, where he enjoyed huge success at Chelsea from 2016 to 2018.
Conte has reportedly turned down an approach from Holland to take over as manager following their poor Euro 2020 showing, with the Italian holding out for a club role next.
