Chelsea face a battle to hang on to one of their most valuable assets

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, seems to have had his head turned by the new Chinese money available at Inter Milan. The Italian has put his contract talks on hold and claims he does not want any distractions as his team chase the Premier League title, however, reports say that New Inter Milan owners are plotting a move for him in the summer.

The Italian has reportedly informed his representatives to stop the ongoing contract negotiations as he wants to concentrate on winning the Premier League and FA cup double this season.

Chelsea are holding a 10 point lead over second placed Tottenham, and may win the League with three games to spare, all things being equal.

That said, he is likely to agree a new deal particularly when he considers how much his hard work has paid off for him this season.

Chelsea are eager to tie the Italian to a new contract sooner. They are concerned about the lure of Inter Milan, who hope to capitalize on the fact that the Italian’s family is yet to move to England.

They have enough money due to new investments from China and would be able to match whatever salary or transfer kitty Chelsea offer him. © 2017 Frontier Theme
