According to Italian sources Antonio Conte would like to bring Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic at Chelsea.

The Slovenian number 1 was one of the best in his role in Serie A in the past campaign and the Nerazzurri put a £18m fee on him.

An arrival of Handanovic to Stamford Bridge could mean that Thibaut Courtois would leave Chelsea: Real Madrid, Barcelona and PSG are interested in him.

Real Madrid are lining up a move for Chelsea midfielder star Cesc Fabregas, according to Don Balòn.

The 29-year-old, who has struggled to impress at Stamford Bridge, might reportedly consider a move to the Merengues despite incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is thought to be a huge admirer of the Spain international.

Fabregas, who played for Barcelona before joining the Blues, has recently admitted he could leave London to return to Spain.

“Yes, why not?” – he told Marca when asked if he could return to La Liga in the future – “Still, I’m honestly not thinking about it because I have a lot of unfinished business at Chelsea after how this season went.”

“I’m not really thinking of anything else, but in my opinion, the Spanish League is the strongest with the English.”

James Rodriguez looks ready to leave Real Madrid after an unhappy and frustrating second season in Spain.

James has only appeared 19-times in top flight football for Real Madrid and a fall-out with French boss Zinedine Zidane is seemingly the reason for his exile.

The Colombian international moved from Monaco in 2014 for £60m after some very promising performances and has been linked with the Premier League in recent months, Chelsea have shown great interest in signing the 24-year-old.

A promise of regular football could be the key to securing the services of James Rodriguez.

The 23-years-old said: “I’m still a Chelsea player next season will also begin preparing at Chelsea. With the new coach we go again full for the title.”

“Of course it’s not nice to be with a top team like Chelsea win few games and stand only in tenth place.”

“Let it be a learning experience for our team, we will come out stronger. Everyone knows that it must be better. It’s easy to lay the fault at the coach, but the players have also gone in the wrong.”

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois could leave Stamford Bridge after the approval of incoming manager Antonio Conte, according to The Times and the Daily Mirror.

It is understood Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have targeted the Belgium International and according to The Times Antonio Conte has reportedly requested “more than £50m” for the goalkeeper.

The paper reports the Blues are “ready to sell Courtois this summer if they can get more than £50 million for the Belgium international goalkeeper in a plan approved by Conte” and “Chelsea placed a £73 million price tag on him when he was linked with Real Madrid last summer, but may be forced to drop their asking price if he is agitating to leave.”

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is still unsure about his Chelsea future and has been linked with a possible move this summer to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Courtois is valued at £70m and Real Madrid would have to offer at least that amount to persuade Chelsea to let the Belgian go.

He was asked last month whether he saw himself at Chelsea next season.

“I do not say yes, I do not say no. I do not know. I still have three years on my contract.

“We must see what Chelsea want. It is true that it [this season] has changed me. Until now I had always won a trophy every season. We hope that next season will be better.”

Madrid enquired about a move for Courtois last season and are ready to step up their efforts if they fail to sign their first choice David De Gea from Manchester United.

There have been reports that Courtois doesn’t see eye-to-eye with the goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon and that would surely add fuel to the fire.

However, newly appointed manager Antonio Conte has spoken to Courtois and his agents telling them that he is a big fan of the 23-year-old and would like him to remain at Stamford Bridge.
