Chris Sutton sends worrying message to Chelsea fans about Antonio Conte

Chris Sutton sends worrying message to Chelsea fans about Antonio Conte”

As for Kante, he's been the best player in the league over the past two seasons.

Conte has reportedly been left frustrated by the club's dealings in the transfer market this summer and his downbeat mood during and after Sunday's Community Shield has led to speculation he could walk away from Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa will put in a formal transfer request in an effort to force a summer move, according to his lawyer.

Chelsea won the English top-flight title in emphatic style in Conte's first season in charge but the Italian is expecting the new season to be very hard with their title rivals bringing in marquee signings.

Chelsea have won only once in pre-season - against Arsenal in another friendly - and Cahill said the second-half sending off for Pedro Rodríguez at Wembley, which was swiftly followed by Sead Kolasinac's equaliser, had been both harmful and unwarranted. Rivals United have shelled out almost as much but haven't come close to regaining the title since Sir Alex Ferguson left. "There is not much else to say about him".

The 28-year-old striker has expressed a desire to return to Atletico, although the fact his former club are under a Federation Internationale de Football Association player registration ban until January complicates matters.

"The club is working on these situations", he said. "I want to see a good game, for the players, for the people".

'For sure the teams you named are very strong (City, United, Arsenal), they have improved a lot and for us, the challenge will be very tough.

Neymar completed his world record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday, when the Brazil striker signed a five-year deal with the French club after paying €222 million (RM1.1 billion) to release himself from his contract at Barcelona.

"These are situations which you can not control", he said.

"I am relaxed about Griezmann. I think one of the frustrations will be that and he'll want to bring someone else in midfield". "Some will have more money, but there are few better teams than Atletico".

Some of the recent transfer speculation involving Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Timothy Fosu-Mensah has had a medical at Crystal Palace ahead of a season-long loan from Manchester United.

Indeed, Conte admitted at the end of last season that his side had been "lucky" not to have had players suffer any major injuries.
