Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim thrust into contention for Inter Milan job

Antonio Conte, Mauricio Pochettino, Diego Simeone and Luciano Spalletti have all been hotly linked with the Inter Milan vacancy and now it’s the turn of Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim who has been thrust into contention at the summit of the market.

Inter are on the search for their fourth manager in less than a year after sacking Stefano Pioli earlier this month. The Italian outfit previously disposed of Frank de Boer after 85 days, while the Dutchman’s predecessor Roberto Mancini left in the summer.

Jardim has now burst into the mix at 2/1, joining Spalletti at the top of the betting.

The Portuguese coach has enjoyed a stunning season, with free-scoring Monaco on the cusp of hoisting their first French title since 2000, while they earned numerous plaudits for their enthralling run through to the Champions League semi-finals.

However, the thrilling team that Jardim has impressively constructed could well be torn apart in the summer, with a host of Europe’s top clubs swooping in for their star names. And now it's boss Jardim is being linked with a move away, and it will be interesting to see whether he’ll have his head turned by reported interest from inter.

It’s no secret that Inter are eager to lure Chelsea’s title-winning boss Conte (8/1) back to Italy. During his time in charge of Juventus Conte famously led the club to three consecutive Serie A triumphs, along with a brace of domestic cups.

Inter's Chinese owners have claimed “Anything is possible” as they attempt to splash the cash in their pursuit of Conte, who is also a target for the super rich Chinese Premier League clubs.

Elsewhere, Pochettino’s reputation has continued to soar during yet another impressive season during which he’s again led Tottenham into the Champions League after bagging 2nd spot, and thus finishing above rivals Arsenal for the first time since 1995.

It’s difficult to see Poch jetting out of North London, and at the time of writing the Argentinian doesn’t even feature in the betting.

Roma boss Luciano Spalletti has been touted as a potential replacement and can be found at just 2/1 to switch jobs. Roma have been on fire of late, winning nine of their last 11 matches, which includes a 3-1 defeat of Juventus last weekend, and they look set to bad second spot for the third time in four seasons.

Elsewhere, Diego Simeone is still a possibility, but speculation linking the Atletico Madrid boss with a move back to the San Siro (he played for Inter in the 1990s, has cooled.
