Chelsea expect Antonio Conte to stay as manager despite ongoing speculation

Reports this morning state that Antonio Conte "could quit" the Chelsea helm amid claims of "mutual tension" between the manager and the club's board as a result of uncertainty regarding their summer transfer prospects.

Chelsea hope to patch up their relationship with Diego Costa but manager Antonio Conte is refusing to back down on the striker's future.

The Italian tactician enjoyed a memorable first year in charge at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League title with the Blues, while guiding them to the FA Cup final.

Ronaldo seems 'very serious' amid Real Madrid exit storm - Andre Silva
Ronaldo is now away on global duty with Portugal, where he is reported to have told his teammates: "I am leaving Real Madrid ". Since I began playing on big stages I always imagined playing alongside him or playing on the same level as him.

Conte is allegedly growing frustrated at the board's resitance to meet Everton's asking price for the in-demand Romelu Lukaku, having made the Belgian striker his primary transfer target with Diego Costa set to leave.

The 25-year old, who made 38 appearances in all competitions last term, was heavily courted by Chelsea last summer but the club were unsuccessful in their attempts to prise him away from Naples.

Memories of Chelsea's largely fruitless 2015 summer window, which helped lay the foundations for Jose Mourinho's second sacking and the most shambolic title defence of the Premier League era, are also feeding supporter concerns.

Inter Milan and AC Milan are also strongly linked with a move for Costa. Hazard is expected to be offered a new deal worth around £300,000-a-week.

The Chelsea boss also want a direct-line of contact with the club's owner Roman Abramovich and outright control over the recruitments of coaching and technical staff.

Willy Caballero is due to complete a free transfer switch to become Chelsea's new back-up goalkeeper once his Manchester City contract formally expires on June 30.

Sky Sports Information HQ understands Chelsea are positive Conte, who is presently on holiday, continues to be dedicated to cry and will certainly return for pre-season in the first week of July as intended.
