Simone Inzaghi is the latest Serie A manager to leave his role, with the coach leaving Lazio ahead of succeeding Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.

Conte agreed to the mutual termination of his Inter contract on Wednesday, with Sky Italia reporting on Thursday that Inzaghi has agreed a two-year deal to coach Serie A champions Inter when his deal in Rome expires next month.

While Conte’s future has yet to be confirmed, it is thought he could be the new Real Madrid coach after Zinedine Zidane announced he is leaving Los Blancos on the same day.

Meanwhile, former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is set to return to Turin to take over from Andrea Pirlo, who will be sacked.

Inzaghi told ANSA: "With great emotion I want to inform you that on June 30 my wonderful adventure with Lazio will come to an end.

"I thank the club, the president, the players and the fans who have accompanied me over these splendid 22 years as a player and coach. We fought and won together.

"These colours will forever remain in my heart: blue and white will always be part of my soul."

Inzaghi has been at Lazio since joining as a player in 1999, winning the Serie A title and three Coppa Italias as a striker before hanging up his boots in 2010.

He started coaching in the capital club’€™s youth sector before taking the first-team job in April, 2016.

Inzaghi guided Lazio to the Coppa Italia and two Italian Super Cup successes, as well as leading them to the last 16 in their first Champions League campaign in 13 years this season.

Sky Italia reported that Inter will confirm on Friday that Inzaghi has signed a two-year deal worth 4 million euros a season.
