Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has reassured club fans that coach Antonio Conte will sign a contract extension with the Turin giants at the end of the season.

Conte, who joined Juve in the summer of 2011 from Siena, is currently tied to the club until June 2015. Juve are keen to offer Conte a long-term deal with the 44-year-old tactician reportedly attracting interest from top clubs abroad.

"There are no problems or a distance between us," Marotta said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "The relationship between Conte, the club, president (Andrea) Agnelli and the board is optimum.

"Right now we are all focused on what would be an historic victory, that is to win our third-straight scudetto. We have decided to leave to one side talks of the future and we will deal with that further ahead well aware that we have a great coach with us."

After winning back-to-back Scudetti, Conte is on course to deliver a third title in a row. Juve are 11 points clear of Roma at the top of the Serie A standings.

The Turin giants are also through to the UEFA Europa League last 16, where they will face Fiorentina.
