The Italian manager is man of ambition, which might be troublesome for the Blues.
According to Chris Sutton, Antonio Conte will walk away from Chelsea the moment his demands are not met. The Italian led the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season at Stamford Bridge as they dominated the English Premier league.
However, Conte has been frustrated with the activity of the club on the transfer market. Not to mention, Matic was sold to United right under his nose.
Speaking to DailyMail, Sutton said:
“Conte has said that he wants to avoid a ‘Mourinho season’.
“I can see him walking.
“He walked from Juventus when he didn’t get his own way.
“If the club are selling [Nemanja] Matic from under his nose then it’s not looking great.”
Meanwhile, Conte revealed that their job on the transfer market is not yet finished as he awaits more signings before the end of the close-season.
“I hope to be able to improve our squad. The transfer market is not finished. We want to be competitive and we want to fight for the title again. The club knows my priorities.” Conte said to Sky Sports.
“It’s a great challenge for us to try and retain the title, but we are working hard.”
