Conte is joined on the shortlist by Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, whose side have secured second place in the Premier League table and said farewell to White Hart Lane on Sunday ahead of their temporary relocation to Wembley Stadium while the ground is redeveloped.
Chelsea's Premier League title-winning celebrations at The Hawthorns were in full flow heading into the early hours of Saturday morning, and the players wanted Conte to be part of it. Some criticism was deserved and others not - and if you bounce back and win the title again. that's wonderful.
So, when Conte came to Chelsea he did not start by using his go-to formation in the 3-4-3, but instead used the much more common 4-3-3 formation.
Asked about his future, Courtois replied: "I don't think now is the moment to speak about that but, of course, I'm committed to Chelsea".
"It wasn't easy for me to arrive in England and try different habits, a different language and inherit players after a bad season", Conte said.
That would set them up ideally for their bid to complete a double with victory over Arsenal in the May 27th FA Cup final.
"It was the key moment for us because every single player found this system the best for them", he said.
"Now they know my idea, I know them, the characteristics of my players, and we can improve", he added.

Operators and owners of PUVs (public utility vehicles) will be held liable for the violations made by their drivers. On the fourth offense, the erring driver will pay a fine of P20,000 plus a revocation of the driiver's license.
Conte also has managed club captain John Terry's gradual fading out from the first team with grace and class.
CHELSEA are the champions - but how have each of their players performed this season?
Chelsea will be back in the Champions League next term after a one-year hiatus. We try to win our games and a year ago was just a one-off, especially for a team like Chelsea with the players we have here.
Terry was an unused substitute at West Brom and has not started in the Premier League since the September 11 draw with Swansea but will be looking for a Stamford Bridge farewell.
"We're going to enjoy this week, but we've got a big day coming up, we want them both".
Conte's focus has already moved on to the next target.
Heaton has had a great season for unfancied Burnley & helped them stay in the Premier League. And Luiz knows Chelsea must maintain momentum.
Chelsea reeled off 13 successive wins after the change and, despite a brief wobble with defeats against Crystal Palace and Manchester United, they coasted to the title in a no-nonsense style befitting their intense boss.
