The 47-year-old ended speculation linking him with a possible move away from the club by signing a two-year contract worth £20 million (R336 million) with the Blues.

The former Juventus and Italy manager, who took the English top flight by storm last season, is delighted with his new deal.

"I am very happy to have signed a new contract with Chelsea," Conte said via Chelsea's official website.

"We worked extremely hard in our first year to achieve something amazing, which I am very proud of. Now we must work even harder to stay at the top.

"The Chelsea fans have given me so much support since I arrived here one year ago and it is important we continue to succeed together."

One of the club's directors, Marina Granovskaia, expressed her happiness after hearing Conte was staying on, and believes the London team will achieve a lot more under him.

"Antonio achieved incredible success last season, adapting to English football very quickly and leading us to the Premier League title," Granovskaia said.

"This new contract reflects our belief that he can continue to deliver results both domestically and as we return to European competition in the Champions League."

Klopp Aims Dig At Mourinho?

Conte's side heads to Asia, where they will take on Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan, for their pre-season tour this week.

It was obvious that his contract was to be extended because he met the board expectations
