Despite winning the Premier League in his first season in charge, Conte's future has been the subject of continued speculation in recent months.
There had been suggestions that the 47-year-old Italian was unhappy with the Chelsea hierarchy over a lack of investment in the transfer market, and could consider his future.
The whole situation must be fairly stressful for one fan - who is enamoured with Conte that he would rather sees the tactician stay in London than have a girlfriend.
And Twitter had a lot to say about it.
