Conte to Newcastle odds slashed
Antonio Conte to Newcastle could really soon become a reality as bookies have been fascinatingly lowered the odds for the Italian tactician replacing Steve Bruce at St James’ Park.
The Magpies are now under new ownership and could make several changes to both their squad and coaching staff in the near future.
There is already talk of club director Amanda Staveley meeting Steve Bruce to give him his marching orders, and Conte would be a dream substitute in the dugout.

Ladbrokes’ Jessica O’Reilly said: “Bruce may hold on for now, but Conte is all the rage with players to replace him with Martinez being a very popular second choice.”
It would be a step if Newcastle could do this as Conte has a tendency to win big trophies everywhere he has been lately which means he is sure to help them make big name signings.
