Antonio Conte is set to take over from Luciano Spalletti as Inter Milan boss and the change looks set to be a costly one for the club.
Spalletti has spent two years in charge of the Nerazzurri but will reportedly be shown the exit door despite securing Champions League qualification.
However, dismissing the Italian will not come cheap with the manager and his staff set to receive £22m in compensation, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Incoming manager Conte has not worked since departing Chelsea last summer after lifting the Premier League title in his first season and FA Cup in his second during a tumultuous two-year spell.
The Italian has been considered for a number of high-profile roles including PSG and Bayern Munich.
However, the 49-year-old is keen to return to his homeland where he achieved notable success with Juventus.
Conte is keen to repeat that with Inter, who are aiming to return to the higher echelons of a division completely dominated by Juventus in recent seasons.
Conte has an existing relationship with Inter CEO, Beppe Marotta, having worked closely at Juventus between 2011 and 2014 when they lifted three straight Serie A titles.
