Antonio Conte has asked his representatives to find him a club management opportunity, with Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain high on his wishlist.

The 46-year-old is currently head coach of Italy's national team, but after successfully securing their spot in next summer's Euros in France, he is ready to make a return to club management after just one year away.

Conte's Managerial Career

Conte has previously only managed in Italy, with spells at Arezzo, Bari, Atalanta, Siena and Juventus, before taking over the role as head coach of Italy.

During his managerial career, Conte has won six major honours, five coming with Juventus and one with Bari.

In 2009, he successfully won the Serie B with Bari before then winning the Serie A on three separate occasions with Juve in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

He has also won the Suppercoppa Italiana on two occasions with The Old Lady.

After leaving Juventus in 2014, he began his adventure as Italy head-coach, but just after a year in the job, he's already wanting a return to club football.

Chelsea and PSG

According to reports, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are on his wishlist, and he's asked his representatives to try and find him an opportunity at a new club.

Chelsea could be without a manager soon if their poor form continues, with Jose Mourinho's job believed to be on the line despite receiving a public backing from Roman Abramovich.

As for PSG, Laurent Blanc's job could also be in danger if they don't do well in the Champions League this season.

Owners of the French side are desperate to win Europe's top competition after dominating the Ligue 1, and if Blanc doesn't successfully win the tournament, he could lose his job.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport have today revealed that Chelsea are considering Conte if they do sack Mourinho, but they have also got a few others on their list.

Diego Simeone from Atletico Madrid is high on Abramovich's radar, as is former-manager and currently unemployed Carlo Ancelotti, who has admitted he wants to return to the Premier League.
