Former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri has claimed that Antonio Conte has no interest in leaving the club despite speculation to the contrary.
Conte has been repeatedly linked with a move back to Italy since arriving at Stamford Bridge last summer.
The Italian steered the Blues to the Premier League title with a record-breaking 30 wins during his debut season.
“The Premier League remains the best and I have not been convinced of Conte’s desire to return home,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Maybe he was expecting a different transfer window but for a few years, [Roman] Abramovich has not paid crazy prices.”
“Manchester City and Manchester United, on the other hand, have made big buys. So I can imagine that for Antonio to fight on more fronts with the same players is more tiring.”
Chelsea currently sit fourth in the Premier League table, already six points adrift of leaders Manchester City and Manchester United.

Kante is regarded as one of the best midfielders in Europe and the price-tag of the Frenchman confirms how important he is for the Premier League champions.
According to a report of Le Parisien, Chelsea have slapped a €90m price-tag on the 26-year-old. This is to inform PSG that that is the sum they have to pay if they want to welcome the services of the midfielder.

Napoli are interested in signing Federico Chiesa, according to the Corriere dello Sport.
Chelsea are set to fight it out for a Fiorentina star, according to reports from Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport.
The Roma-based paper claims that Federico Chiesa is attracting interest from Chelsea as well as Serie A duo Napoli and Inter Milan.
The report claims that the 19-year-old is valued around €40m, but it currently considered untouchable by Fiorentina.
Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis recently admitted that he “had asked the Della Valle brothers [Fiorentina owners] for him [Chiesa] as recently as twenty days ago.”
The Viola currently consider the 19-year-old winger to be untouchable, especially after selling Federico Bernardeschi last summer.
