Conte arrived at Stamford Bridge last summer and guided Chelsea to the Premier League title and FA Cup final in his first season in charge.
Chelsea are keen to tie Conte down to a new contract after an impressive maiden campaign in England.
But according to the Daily Record, Conte and Chelsea’s hierarchy are at odds over the club’s plan of action for the upcoming season.
The Italian manager reportedly wants more money to spend in the summer window to improve all areas of his squad.
Conte has publicly stated his side is currently not fit to defend their Premier League crown and compete in the Champions League next term.
He reportedly feels Chelsea owe him a big transfer budget after his employers failed to deliver on his targets in his two previous windows at Stamford Bridge.
Conte is also said to have requested a direct line of communication to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, full control over the club’s academy and improved financial terms.
The 47-year-old also wants power over the appointment of assistant coaches following the departure of Steve Holland to England this summer.
The Daily Record add that Chelsea may be forced to turn to former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel should Conte leave due to lack of options.
Inter Milan were heavily linked with a move for the former Juventus and Italy manager, but he has repeatedly remained loyal to Chelsea when talking about his future.
“I have a contract with Chelsea for two more years,” Conte said last month.
“It’s logical that, when you start the work in a new club, the will is to continue to work and improve your work for many years.
“For sure, this is my will. But now the most important thing is to reach our target. We worked very hard for the whole season. Now it’s important to be ready and to try to win and then to celebrate together.
“It’s normal to have a lot of speculation around my players and the coaches, different coaches, so it’s important not to lose concentration and be focused. The moment is fantastic for us.
“For me and my players, the important thing is to be focused on the moment. It’s not important the single person: me, or the future of my players.”
