Antonio Conte sends stern warning to Chelsea about summer transfers – report
The Chelsea manager is prepared to leave the Premier League champions in the summer transfer window, according to reports
Antonio Conte has warned Chelsea that he is prepared to leave the Premier League champions if his transfer demands aren’t met this summer, according to reports in the English media.
Yahoo! Sport is reporting that the Italian coach won’t agree to sign a new contract until the Italian coach is satisfied with Chelsea’s efforts in the summer transfer window.
The Premier League champions have endured a frustrating start to the transfer window having failed to agree any deals so far despite seeing their top rivals start improving their squads.
The same article states that Chelsea have “intensified” their efforts to sign Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and Juventus full-back Alex Sandro in an attempt to keep Conte happy.
According to the story, Conte has been left feeling “unhappy and alone” despite guiding the west London side to the Premier League title in his first season at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea signed five players in the summer transfer window in 2016 as Conte improved his squad following his appointment as Guus Hiddink’s permanent successor.
The Blues lost 2-1 to bitter rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley last month to miss out on a double in Conte’s first season.
