"It's very important to try to find the right solution, to try to improve the squad", Conte said this week at the Premier League launch.
"Then you know very well that there are the surprises".
"I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".
The season of "silly spending" has dominated every talk of European football and we still have a few days left before the price tags keep sending us in a tizzy. But for sure we want to try to fight, to fight until the end, to try to retain the title.
Now Lampard has given his views on the move completed by his former Chelsea team-mate, as he spoke exclusively to Yahoo Sport.
Pep Guardiola's debut season was undermined by a backline that conceded more than a goal a game, while defensive catastrophes also cost them in Europe as they were dumped out of the Champions League by Monaco in the last-16 despite hitting five past them in the first leg.
"The investment of all the top teams is changing the landscape and it's not just that - the quality of the league as a whole has improved".
"I think Matic [himself] personally maybe wanted to move on".
"Two coaches have been sacked from Chelsea and Leicester after winning the league and I want to avoid this". While they do have a talented starting 11, including repeat Golden Boot victor Harry Kane and two-time PFA Young Player of the Year victor Dele Alli, Tottenham is an injury or two away from struggling to compete in 2017-18.
Spurs, unlike their other title contenders, have been quiet in this transfer window, so it remains to be seen if a lack of new blood coming in will be to their detriment or not.
The Merseyside club has added two promising English players in goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from Sunderland and defender Michael Keane from Burnley, while Koeman looked closer to home to sign Netherlands midfielder Davy Klaassen from Ajax. "But of course at the moment I have 33 players and it's hard to manage such a high number on a daily basis".
While Manchester City spent combined total of £1,427,030,000 on six players, Manchester United acquired three players worth £1,157,950,000. Newcastle United, back in the big league, will hope it is a negative, as Rafa Benitez looks to spoil Mauricio Pochettino's party on the opening weekend. They've gone down a certain route with strength in their team and they are potential winners.
