Chelsea boss Antonio Conte didn’t dimiss the speculation and commented the situation like this:

“I dont know the amount and the situation, but I think you will know the situation in the right moment.

“It’s not easy to take the best decision, you have also to understand if you choice penalise you, even if there is an amazing offer.

“If we will replace him in January? I always speak with the club, with the board, they know my thought about the situation. We will try to take the best decision, but I am very sorry if I will go, for the player, for the man.”

Conte was consulted Chinese Super League, that is trying to attract big players and managers with insane money offers and was asked if he scared about them:

“The Chinese market is a danger for every team in the world, not only for Chelsea, but I think we must be concentrated on our work. In China there is a lot of money , but I guess this league is fantastic, it must be a honour to work here.

“I can’t predict the future of a single player, I think every single player is the owner of his future.

Chelsea star Nemanja Matic admits he could leave the Blues to join Manchester United with his former manager and Stamford Bridge legend José Mourinho:

I spoke with the club and we both decided that it was best for the club and for me to stay,” Matic said.

“I’m very happy because I’m now here with this team and this club. I will give my best and all my quality to help the team to challenge for the title. I want to improve my game and I’m sure Conte is the right coach to do that,” he added.

Matic also spoke about his new team-mate and midfield partner N’Golo Kante:

Many people say that he is the new Makelele, but I don’t think so. Makelele was a great player and we all respect him, me especially because I know that position and how it is difficult to play.”

Donnarumma, 17, is considered Buffon’s heir and has already shown a great talent and confidence for his age: his agent Mino Raiola – the same of Pogba and Ibrahimovic – is considering a move for him in the next summer and Premier League clubs are already starting talks with him to secure the services of the Italian new prodigy.

Donnarumma is reportedly on a deal worth around £134,000-a-year at San Siro and Milan value him around € 60m/ £ 50m.

2016 summer transfer window has slammed shut, and teams have made notable and significant changes from last season in the already ongoing 2016/2017 Premier League season, albeit the international break it has been quite an electric start for the two Manchester clubs and of course Chelsea who all lead by 9 points.

During the course of the transfer windows there were some good signings by Chelsea in the form of Michy Batshuayi from Olympique de Marseille and N’Golo Kante from current Premier League champions Leicester City as well as two notable deadline signings in Fiorentina’s left back Marcos Alonso and and most notably yet sensational return of former blue David Luiz which raised a few eyebrows with some greeting it with criticism and others skeptic about the transfer but the reactions have been the exact opposite with the fans,since he’s a “fans favorite” in his first spell,so it’s no surprise he’s been received with an opened hand by the fans. But irrespective of what’s being said or speculated only time will tell if the signings make the desired impact this season.

Then we have the Cesc Fabregas dilemma, that has been a blight in an otherwise good start for Chelsea ,with the fans calling for him to start games because his creativity is being wasted on the bench and the rumors were making the waves around during the summer transfer window about his proposed move to Spanish giants Real Madrid but the spaniard has come out bluntly to deny such and even claimed to have a fantastic relationship with BLues boss Antonio Conte also stating that he has Fabregas in his plans, but it is yet to be seen where Spaniard will be deployed as the season unfolds but only time will tell.

Unfortunately he inclusion of Kenedy and Matt Miazga to the club loan army stronghold with both joining Watford and Vitesse Arnhem respectively while Michael Hector joined Eintracht Frankfurt earlier,only the best can be wished to them while we are optimistic of the performances at the end of the season and hope they garner the expected experience and improvement.

Everton star and former Chelsea youngster Romelu Lukaku explained why he didn’t force a move to the Blues in the past transfer window:

“For me football is not about money – I want to win prizes,” the 23-year-old said in an interview with Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad.  

But when I get into a situation where I can leave but my team will not let me, I’m not someone who misses training, gets fined and develops a bad reputation.

“I try to remain calm and treat my club with respect. Hopefully they also treat me with respect and I can leave through the front door.

“I knew of the interest of a few clubs, it was quickly very clear that Everton would not let me go. It was important to me that I remained calm, and I did.

“I said to myself that I will do my best, and who knows what will happen in the future.”

“It stings a little but I’m someone who believes that everything happens for a reason.”

Chelsea was not the only team that was keen on the Belgian striker:

“Otherwise I would have gone to Juventus instead of staying at Everton. But I opted for Everton because it was too early for Italy and I have not done badly here.”

“I tell Mino Raiola[Lukaku’s agent]  what I think and eventually we have to make the decision that is best for me.

Lukaku admitted that Toffees new boss Ronald  Koeman played a key-role in his decision to stay at Goodison Park:

“Now we have a new coach and it is completely different than with Mr Martinez, but I think we can make progress under Ronald Koeman. It may be the last step and then look further.”
