Carlo Ancelotti has told Antonio Conte that he will need to spend big in the summer transfer window ahead of his second season in charge at Chelsea.

The Italian manager is gearing up for his second campaign in charge at Stamford Bridge after leading Chelsea to the Premier League title last season.

Chelsea are set to make a return to the Champions League next season after winning the title last season in Conte’s first campaign in charge.

The Blues have been linked with a host of players this summer but have so far only brought in Willy Caballero and Antonio Rudiger ahead of the new campaign.

And Bayern Munich boss Ancelotti feels that his compatriot will still have to strengthen his squad significantly ahead of his second campaign in charge.

Ancelotti is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror: “Conte will be forced to change something, as he won the Premier League using practically the same players all the time.

“In the Champions League, he’ll need to buy a lot and buy well.”

Chelsea missed out on a domestic double last season after the Blues were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup final back in May.
