Conte ready to commission blockbuster £78m Chelsea raid

After seeing Antonio Conte lead his new Chelsea side to a win last night, the Blues propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern have been waxing poetic over the fiery Italian. 

Already endearing himself to the West London faithful, the former Juventus coach shows little sign of being left behind the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho.

Having made his opening statement on the pitch, the 46-year old is now ready to make one off it.

According to Spanish outlet Sportthe Stamford Bridge titans are ready to splash a stunning €90m (£78m) on Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez.

The Colombian has found it difficult to break into the first-team in the Spanish capital after falling out of favour under Rafa Benitez and Zinedine Zidane.

Clearly one of the elite talents in the game, the 25-year old is said to be a huge target of Conte’s as he looks to keep up with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City.

It’s fair to say that no superstar signings have yet walked though the door at the Bridge thus far, which is quite odd for a club of Chelsea’s nature.

Could Chelsea really sign James?! Let us know below…
