Will Antonio Conte's spending habits price him out of a job this summer?

There is only one manager who has won league titles with three clubs in Europe’s top five divisions since 2014 and he is out of work. Antonio Conte is the serial winner who inherited a Chelsea team who had come 10th, 31 points behind first, and made them champions in his debut year, who won Juventus’ first Scudetto in nine years (officially, anyway) and Inter’s first in 11, before resigning last week.

In a sense, he ought to be the prime candidate for every managerial vacancy. And, in a summer when Real Madrid, Tottenham, Juventus, Roma, Napoli and Lille have had vacancies, when perhaps Paris Saint-Germain might, there have been plenty. The managerial merry-go-round feels busier than normal. Conte has got off, but perhaps he might not get back on again.
