Antonio Conte has left his role as Inter Milan manager – three weeks after leading the club to a first Serie A title in 11 years.
The 51-year-old former Italy international spent two years in charge of Inter and had one year remaining on his contract.
The former Chelsea manager has recently been linked with Real Madrid and the vacancy at Tottenham.
In a statement, Inter thanked Conte for his “extraordinary work” at the club, and added that the decision to terminate the Italian’s contract was mutual.
Despite helping Inter end Juventus’ dominance of Serie A, there has been speculation over Conte’s future at the club for months.
Inter’s owner, the Chinese retail group Suning, is reportedly suffering financial pressure which is expected to lead to cost-cutting at the club and player sales this summer.
In February, Jiangsu FC, also owned by Suning, folded just three months after winning their first Chinese Super League title.
Former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and current Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi have both been named by the Italian press as potential successors to Conte.
