Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had a great start to the week, as a defeat to Manchester United on Sunday blew the Premier League title race wide open.
The Blues face another major test this weekend against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley and many fans in the bar are concerned that their castle could come tumbling down in the next few months.
As well as facing a challenge on the field, the Blues face a wealth of uncertainty this summer as the likes of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Diego Costa continue to be linked with high-profile moves across Europe.
If that wasn’t concerning enough, our landlord has revealed an interesting report from the continent which suggests Antonio Conte’s services are being eyed by Inter Milan – with Gazzetta Dello Sport stating a whopping €50m will be offered to the Italian coach.
Conte has transformed Chelsea this season but the lucrative offer from Inter, which is broken down in a five-year contract, may prove to be tempting.
Our landlord believes Simeone is the more likely candidate to take the job at the San Siro, although he expects that move to take place in a year’s time.
Chelsea fans, is there any chance of Conte leaving? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
