“Candreva? There’s been no offer for him.

Then he spoke about his next rivals, both coached by Italian managers, Carlo Ancelotti and Antonio Conte.

Bayern Munich and Chelsea both have no weaknesses and are strong, but I expect an Inter side that can aim to do well. These teams must be in our sights.”

Speaking after Bayern’s defeat Chelsea boss Conte praised Spalletti, claiming Inter appointed one the best managers available, making a very good deal to fulfill their ambitions to be back in the European clubs elite again:

Conte’s praise? He’s strong and a winner, so I’m happy that he’s expressed certain ideas about me. There’s a mutual esteem, and I saw Chelsea play well against the Germans.

“Antonio is a coach in trend, he’s managed to win a title at Chelsea with three at the back, in a League where playing with four was almost a rule.”

According to Sky Sport Italia Inter are keen to sign Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen.

The Nerazzurri are looking for a centre-back and after signing Milan Skriniar from Sampdoria ( even if the deal is not official yet) they are looking for another young player to revamp their defense.

Rumours claim Inter directors enquired with Chelsea about Christensen situation: the 21-year-old impressed in his two years long loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach and he is now set to join the Blues first team squad for the pre-season.

Should he fail to gain Antonio Conte’s trust he will be on the market again but it’s not clear yet if Chelsea are keen for a loan or a permanent move for the Danish talent.

Antonio Conte‘s agent Federico Pastorello revealed Inter star Antonio Candreva, a client of his as well, was close to join Chelsea some months ago.

The Italian international was targeted by the Blues boss also last summer but it was in January that Candreva was closer to move to Stamford Bridge:

“There was a moment, in January, after Chelsea sold Oscar that they were looking for a player to replace him, and Candreva was a perfect substitute…but he had joined Inter only for six months and didn’t want to move,” Pastorello claimed.

The Italian agent didn’t dismiss Inter offer for Conte in the past months as well:

“Inter were looking for a manager in the past months…but now they appointed Luciano Spalletti, and they got a really important coach.”
