Chelsea Plot Move For £60m Brazilian As Conte Eyes Double Swoop

Chelsea Plot Move For £60m Brazilian As Conte Eyes Double Swoop”

However, Conte believes Chelsea's London rivals are not under as much pressure to fight for trophies as the other clubs in the top six, and said: "My question is this: What are Tottenham's expectations?"

Luciano Spalletti's team are putting together an impressive run of pre-season form.

The England worldwide has won the Golden Boot for the last two seasons, helping Mauricio Pochettino's team finish third and second respectively. They've had a heavy schedule and Spalletti will surely have to rotate his tired squad, before they head back to Italy to play another friendly next weekend. "He'll play a part of the match, i must decided if he will start from the beginning or not".

It is little surprise that Conte should covet a player of such pedigree who has proved so effective in the Premier League. If they don't arrive in the Champions League, it's not a tragedy.

Chelsea broke their transfer record to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid this summer after missing out to Manchester United for former centre-forward Romelu Lukaku. "You go to buy a right back, a left back or a central defender and he is expensive. It's already time to think about the next season and do better than past year".

Conte has defended his policy when it comes to youngsters trying to break into the first team and suggested that Chelsea is not the ideal place for them to do so.

Conte faced criticism this week for accusing young players of being "impatient" while allowing a number of Chelsea youngsters to leave Stamford Bridge.

The 28-year-old has been training alone in Brazil as he waits for his future to be sorted.

"They lost Walker but to continue with the same players is good for the coach".

"I'm pleased with this preseason because I saw the right commitment from my players", Conte said.

Only Spanish midfielder Borja Valero, once briefly of West Bromwich Albion, and Slovakian defender Milan Skriniar (pictured) have been bought to strengthen the first-team so far this summer.
