Antonio Conte wants to make Man United star his first Chelsea signing – report

Matteo Darmian could be on his way to Chelsea this summer, according to reports

Antonio Conte is keen on a deal to bring Matteo Darmian to Chelsea from Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

The Blues have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks as Conte prepares for his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.

However, despite all of the speculation, Chelsea are yet to make any new signings this summer as the Blues prepare to welcome their new Italian coach to the club.

Conte is currently managing Italy at Euro 2016, and Bleacher Report is now claiming that the manager is keen on bringing his defender Darmian with him to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Darmian only joined United last summer in a transfer deal from Torino, although his future under new manager Jose Mourinho remains unclear.

Former Juventus manager Conte was appointed as Mourinho’s successor at Stamford Bridge last season after the Portuguese coach was sacked back in December.
