Chelsea are looking to upgrade their squad seriously in the summer in order to keep Antonio Conte.
The Italian manager was speaking in his press conference ahead of Monday night’s game against Watford.
That’s according to the Daily Mirror, who say that the board are preparing to try and keep their man by showing serious intent to upgrade their squad.
The former Juve coach pointed out that the squad needed incremental upgrades rather than the eight player overhaul they had this summer.
A strong squad with depth all over would allow the signings in the summer to be of a greater value, and would hopefully bring the first XI up to the high standard set by Manchester City.
Conte himself was insistent that they had to be “world class” standard, as that was where the bar was being set by the league leaders. Now it remains to be seen whether the board will back the man they look more likely to sack at this moment.
