Earlier this year, Suning-owned Chinese club Jiangsu FC closed just three months after winning their first Chinese Super League title.
Reports suggest Inter President Steven Zhang asked Conte to cut wages by 15 to 20 percentage and sell players close to $100 million this summer. However, the former Chelsea coach objected and demanded that for Inter's future success, his squad remained unchanged.
Announcing the former Italian coach's departure, Inter released a statement on their website which read:
"FC Internazionale Milano can confirm that an agreement has been reached with Antonio Conte for the termination of his contract by mutual consent. The ClubClub would like to thank Antonio for the extraordinary work that he has done, culminating in Inter's 19th top-flight title. Antonio Conte will forever remain a part of our Club'sClub's history."
The Italian broke Juventus's dominance in Serie A and led Inter to their first Serie A title in over a decade. He spent two seasons in charge of the Nerazzurri with one year remaining on his contract.

The 51-year-old who previously coached Juventus helped win three Serie A titles in his three seasons there. Moreover, he also helped Chelsea win the Premier League title in 2017.
Conte has been linked with the move to Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane will likely leave the Los Blancos this summer. There have been reports of his possible return to Premiere League as Tottenham has a vacant managerial position.
After the Italian manager's exit, Simone Inzaghi and Massimiliano Allegri are potential successors to him.
