The agent of Antonio Conte has claimed that his client will remain in charge of Chelsea next season.
Conte's future at Stamford Bridge has been the subject of speculation in recent months, with reports suggesting that his time at the club is coming to an end.
Speculation increased following Chelsea's heavy defeats to Bournemouth and Watford but the Blues have responded with victories over West Bromwich Albion and Hull City.
One touted destination for Conte is the helm of the Italy national team, with the Azzurri desperate to bounce back after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
However, agent Federico Pastorello believes that the Italian - who has had one stint in charge of La Nazionale - will honour his three-year contract at Chelsea.
"Conte has already been through that experience and prefers to work with the squad on a daily basis," Pastorello told Rai Sport.
"I see him at Chelsea next year, as he has a contract valid for another season-and-a-half and doesn't like to leave things unfinished."
The West Londoners currently sit fourth in the Premier League table but remain in contention for the Champions League and the FA Cup.
