    Chelsea were in sensational form all throughout the previous season as they managed to lift the Premier League trophy and also helped themselves to a place in the finals of the FA Cup against Arsenal.

    Though they lost the FA Cup final, they have learnt a few things about the weaknesses of the squad that Conte is determined to improve on this summer.

    The Blues’ coach is desperate to add quality players to his first-team this summer to help them compete with the best in the business, but not everything is smooth behind the doors at the Stamford Bridge.

    Not too long ago, it was reported that Antonio Conte could quit Chelsea, thanks to a rift with the owners, and though that looked like just a rumour, it now looks like there was more to it.

    According to a story run by Yahoo Sports, Conte is now unsettled at the club and could be quitting anytime soon.

    The Italian manager’s contract with the Blues ends in 2019 and it looked like Conte is ready to pen a new deal, however, this story claims that the former Juventus man will not sign a new deal unless he is given full support in his transfer dealings.

    Chelsea are ready to offer Conte a contract extension this summer but it is understood that the manager is ready to wait till the end to put pen to paper.

    The report claims that Conte believes that the squad at the Bridge is not good enough to compete for the Champions League and wants some big money names at the club.

    However, he will have to sell a few to raise funds for top transfer target.

    The story also claims that the manager does not have a great relationship with the hierarchy and the owner of the club and is ready to hold out on better wages on his new deal.

    It also claims that Conte feels “unhappy and alone” and could be looking to move back to his home country.

    However, Conte is reportedly happy with the salary offered by Chelsea in the proposed new contract and he can also pick his own assistant manager following the exit of Steve Holland to the England national team.
