Jamie Carragher believes that Antonio Conte will have full control over signings at Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The Blues are likely to be one of the busiest Premier League sides in the forthcoming transfer window as Antonio Conte begins to prepare his team for a return to the Champions League next season.

Conte has had a magnificent impact at Stamford Bridge since being appointed as the club’s new manager last summer and watched his team be crowned Premier League champions in his first campaign in charge last week.

The Italian manager is likely to be keen to add some depth to his squad as he prepares them to fight on four fronts next season.

And Liverpool legend Carragher feels that Conte will be given the final say about comings and goings at Stamford Bridge this term.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Carragher said: “There will be people coming in. It’s well-documented.

“There’s a grey area in terms of who buys the players. When a manager comes in and is so successful, he has got power.

“Antonio Conte will be telling people who he wants.”
