According to reports in the British press Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has put talks for a new deal with the Blues on hold.

The Italian coach was set to sign a new deal with the Stamford Bridge side in this summer, but it seems he is – at the moment- really disappointed by the club activity in the transfer market

Chelsea signed second goalkeeper Willy Caballero, adding two big signings like Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoué Bakayoko in the past week, but the Blues haven’t signed a striker to replace Diego Costa yet and Conte was literally furious after Romelu Lukaku completed is signing to Manchester United, snubbing Chelsea offer ( it is believed the player and the club had already agreed personal terms).

Conte was approached by Inter over the past months, but the Nerazzurri eventually appointed ex Roma manager Luciano Spalletti, since the Blues coach preferred to stay at Chelsea, who offered him £ 9.6m new deal, that hasn’t been signed yet since Conte want more guarantees from the club, especially in the transfer market.

Something is going going on in the deal that has to bring Tiemoué Bakayoko to Chelsea.

As we reported today the French midfielder was in London last night, where he had dinner with David Luiz and Willian, and at Cobham today to undergo a medical and finally sign his contract with the Blues.

Something went wrong at the moment to sign, with too many agents and representatives – the main one was Kia Joorabchian– that wanted to be on his contract to take their wages, a situation that created confusion, so the deal was temporarily called off.

AS Monaco told French press that the problem in the deal was not the medical, that was passed, or the fee, since the two clubs reached an agreement in the past days ( approximately £ 40m).

Bakayoko seemed very disappointed and after showing his enthusiasm to be close to sign for Chelsea all over the day with his Instagram activity, he suddenly changed his Twitter profile picture, putting back an old snap in Monaco shirt.

Before leaving London he posted a coupled of tweets from Heatrow, where he was claiming he was missing his “home sweet home Monaco”, along with some red and white flags, to remark his feeling with the princedom.

According to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard to extend Antonio Conte‘s deal this summer will be the best signing for the Blues in this transfer window.

Speaking to ESPN, Super Frank said:

“Antonio would be their most important signing. For me, he was their man of the season. You talk about player of the year, I’m all for giving the players credit but because it was such a dramatic uplift from the year before I think you have to give him huge credit.

“You saw the system change and how he made them play in that formation, it worked well. I think he’s a huge signing for them. I have no doubts, I don’t know but I’m pretty confident he’ll be there and they’ll bring in players to play in the system he wants to play.’’
