Everybody seem focused on the signings of new players right now, but according to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, The Blues have, first, to agree a contract extension with manager Antonio Conte.
“Conte would be their most important signing” – Lampard said – “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.”
