Antonio Conte desperate to bring 33-year-old Chelsea star at Inter Milan

Antonio Conte is eyeing up a surprise reunion with departing Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill, according to a report.

The experienced defender will officially leave the Blues following seven years of service when his contract expires at the end of the month.

Italian outlet Sport Mediaset claims that Cahill may continue playing at the highest level as Conte, appointed Inter boss three weeks ago, wants him to form part of his new-look side.

Conte is said to prefer Cahill to Miranda, though he has yet to approach the 33-year-old – who he worked with for two seasons at Chelsea – with an offer.

Speaking at the start of the month, Cahill said he will bide his time before making a decision on his future. Newly-promoted Aston Villa have also been linked with the former Bolton Wanderers centre-back.

Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has opened the door to a future move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Bakayoko will return to Stamford Bridge this summer having spent a season on loan at AC Milan, making a total of 41 appearances for the Italian side in all competitions.

The 24-year-old may represent Chelsea during the next campaign due to the West Londoners potentially being unable to sign new players.

However, Bakayoko has his sights set on an eventual switch to Parc des Princes having been born in France’s capital.
