Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are waiting on what will happen to fan favourite Antonio Conte in the summer, after a dreadful 2018 so far.
Chelsea have been in decline for the majority of the year, and following two awful transfer windows, it’s certainly piled the pressure further on the Italian boss. One of the main problem areas for the Blues according to our regulars in the bar this season is the midfield as a spate of injuries and suspensions has often seen them with a threadbare squad.
Our Blues in the bar are looking at the remaining few months of the season as a chance for some players to really stake their claim as to why they should be at the club next season and give Abramovich no choice but to keep Conte on. However, their first priority should be getting back into the top-four for Champions League qualification, with their recent form since the turn of the year being very poor, this seems like an uphill task at the moment.
As much as many of our west London locals want him to stay, it seems like their fiery Italian coach will be heading for the exit doors at the end of the campaign.
