Chelsea has had a quiet summer transfer window so far but there is still plenty of time to get in new players to strengthen the squad after their poor showing last season and not making it into the UCL this season. Chelsea priority is to replace Antonio Conte with Maurizo Sarri former Napoli’s manager who had an amazing last season with Napoli finishing with a record 91 point for a second placed team. Chelsea are trying to sack Conte without having to pay his huge compensations and are prepared to go to court to settle the deal properly (According to some British media). Italian media suggests that contractual agreement between Chelsea and Napoli is delaying the Sarri move.
Top sources and even Napoli players has confirmed that Sarri will be with the blues next season. Pep Guardiola said last season that Sarri was the best manger he ever played against in his managerial career, so Chelsea fans are excited about the deal.
Chelsea are unhappy with the role Conte played in them having to sell their star striker Diego Costa to Atletico Madrid for a relatively cheap price considering the inflammation in the transfer market.
Sarri has reportedly released a list of players needed at the club with Gonzalo Higuain topping the transfer list, Chelsea fans are unhappy with their link to Higuain, thou, Higuain’s brother has come out to refute the claims of a possible transfer as his brother is willing to honor his contract at Juventus. Chelsea has been struggling with finding a proper striker to replace Costa with Morata and Giroud not living up to expectations at the Stamford bridge. Chelsea has also made inquiries for Roma goalkeeper Alisson because Courtois have been linked heavily to a move to Madrid after claims that he wants to be close to his children.
Chelsea are holding tight to Willian after rejecting two bids from Barcelona and are not prepared to lose the Brazilian with his fine form during the world cup and his stellar performances last season. Chelsea are trying to avoid selling any player now until their new coach is confirmed and can make decisions on who stays and who leaves.
Russian star Aleksandr Golovin has been linked to Chelsea, with his mother confirming contact between Chelsea and CSKA Moscow but nothing concrete yet as her son is concentrating on the world cup with Russia. Chelsea has also entered the race to sign Rabiot from PSG,talks are ongoing but nothing concrete yet.
Chelsea fans will be hoping their coach problems will be resolved quickly so that the Chelsea board can start planning for next season as preseason training starts.
