Chelsea lining up a move for ex-Barcelona boss

Conte has supposedly set out a list of demands to owner Roman Abramovic and the rest of the Chelsea board, with relations between the manager and those above him worsening.

If portion (s) of this report seem a bit extreme, and you might find it hard to believe that Antonio Conte would walk, after just one season, and not defend his title, then remember this story could just be a plant.

The Belgian has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu this summer but AS report Los Blancos have admitted defeat with the Chelsea star's latest comments appearing to commit his future to Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United legend Cantona has been left bemused by the whole situation at Stamford Bridge, with an odd form of management being adopted by the Chelsea boss.

Conte has already outlined a £200 million spree that will include the signings of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, Juventus left-back Alex Sandro, Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng and Monaco superstar Tiemoue Bakayoko.



Chelsea consider those talks to be an indication that they are backing their manager and insist that the targets the manager has identified are being pursued, though it is early days.

There were rumours that this had led to disagreements between Conte and the club's hierarchy but the 47-year-old could sign an improved contract just 12 months after inking a three-year deal.

However, should Conte leave over his transfer frustration, they will target ex-Barcelona coach Luis Enrique.

Chelsea have been monitoring the situation of Koulibaly, a French-born Senegal worldwide, for quite some time, and are clearly high on his talents. The report points to Thomas Tuchel, who recently ruled himself out of the Southampton job after leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.
