Chelsea eye former Barcelona boss as Conte replacement

Ex-Manchester United man questions 'risky' Chelsea transfer policy

Antonio Conte says he plans to stay at Chelsea beyond the summer, and will reject any overtures from the Italian football federation to return to the global job.

Conte, who guided Chelsea to the league title in his first season, has struggled to extract the same level of ruthlessness from the London club in his second campaign in charge.

Costacurta had claimed he would travel to London to speak to Conte, who is under pressure at Chelsea following Wednesday's 3-0 home defeat to Bournemouth - the club's worst defeat since April 2016. "I know that Mancini is in Rome but hasn't been contacted, Conte seems eager to return to the blue shirt, Ancelotti opens and closes the door, Ranieri isn't out either", he said (via Calcio Mercato).

Antonio Conte has reaffirmed his intention to remain at Chelsea beyond the end of this season and see out the remaining year and a half on his contract.

Peter Crouch to Chelsea somehow wasn't the most surprising transfer rumour of January.

"The only thing that I can tell you now that I still have 18 months of contract with Chelsea and my desire to continue to stay here, to continue my work". I signed for three years and my desire is to respect the contract. I'm not interested in this.

New signing Olivier Giroud may also make his debut as Alvaro Morata's back troubles continue but Conte insisted the French striker might not be ready to start the game.

France right-back Bacary Sagna said Saturday he was hoping to revive his global career and play in the World Cup as he signed for Serie A underdogs Benevento.

"I trust in my work and this is the only way that brought me to be one of the best managers". I heard Antonio Conte quite likes me as a player but I was only ever concentrating on Stoke.

He added, "We are working with him and we have to check his physical condition".

"It will be very important to look at the reality and to know that, if we are able to reach a place in the Champions League, it will be a great success for us". Don't forget we maybe have Willian back'.
