It’s right to have a meeting with the club about the transfer market in January,” – Conte said according to Football.London. – “But you have to ask the club which players will come and leave. I can give my opinion to the club and the last word is the club’s. I have to respect every decision.”

According to various reports two players in particular can leave Chelsea in January, Michy Batshuayi and Charly Musonda, but Conte says he is happy to have them both in his team. “He is part of my squad,” – Conte said about Batshuayi -. “Batshuayi was out for three weeks and then he struggled a bit to find the right physical condition. Now he’s in good form. But if you compare to last season, he is playing.”.

And then about Musonda he went on: “I’m happy for him to sign a new contract. The club I think took the right decision for this, and the player the same. Then for his future I think the club and the player will take the right decision.”

About former Bournemouth star Ake: “He has improved a lot in the last one-and-a-half years and I felt it was right for him to come back. Also, in January, the market is not easy, so I took the opportunity for us to bring him back”.

While, about 20-year-old former Betis Seville youngster: “Musonda is a bit different from Ake because he wasn’t playing much at Real Betis”,

“He was a player who, in pre-season, I would have liked to see. Now he stays with us, he has good prospects, he can improve a lot and he’s very young”.

“I think if he stays with us to work, to improve physically, technically and tactically, it will be very important for him and for me because for the next few months I can have a good option”.
