The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Antonio Conte will sign a new contract at Chelsea sooner, rather than later…
The Italian manager has, of course, had an incredible first season in charge at Stamford Bridge – and looks likely to lead the Blues back to the pinnacle of English football with a Premier League win.
However, it seems as though the Blues in the pub will have to wait slightly longer than expected for Conte to sign on – with The Times reporting that the Italian has put back talks over a new contract – with the manager keen to avoid any distractions ahead of what is sure to be a vital run in at Stamford Bridge.
Whilst the Blues in the Transfer Tavern would like to see a Conte sign on quickly, they can certainly understand his point of view. After all, Chelsea are punching far above their weight this season, and any distractions could be costly.
However, there is also reason to be concerned. Inter Milan are reportedly confident that they can poach the manager from Chelsea and take him back to Serie A – so there is certainly a balance to be found at Stamford Bridge.
