Chelsea must make signings — Conte

Antonio Conte has conceded that Nemanja Matic's move to Manchester United is a "great loss" for Chelsea and reiterated that more signings are required for the Blues to have any hope of defending their Premier League title this season. So, here are four reasons why Chelsea have had a poor summer so far.

The fiery, Brazilian-born Spaniard is currently in limbo, having been ostracised by Antonio Conte at Chelsea - allegedly via text message.

Because of this, Liverpool legend Carragher has said that he thinks it's unlikely that Conte will be their manager in a year. N'Golo Kante and Bakayoko serve as the anchors for Conte's 3-4-3 and youngster Andreas Christensen shows he's ready to contribute in the team's back three.

Chelsea's willingness to sell the player drew criticism from numerous figures within the sport, with Paul Scholes most recently questioning the decision to let him go.

"[Conte] is a coach who works hard every day, works a lot of tactics and the physical part".

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill admits Diego Costa will be a 'big miss' for the Premier League champions as they prepare to defend the title. The Croatian is as impressive defensively as he is attacking and at 6ft 1in would be another substantial player to add to an already forcible pack.

Stamford Bridge is a battlefield as Antonio Conte and Roman Abramovich continue to battle for control of Chelsea Football Club.

"Maybe that is a frustration for Conte". The club knows my priorities.

Not only that; it simply isn't big enough.

Costa, now persona non grata following a fall-out with Conte, hit 20 league goals last term to fire Chelsea to the title - nine of those directly earned his side points.

Then there's the need for a winger who can supply the bullets for Lukaku, something which was glaringly obvious and will not have escaped Mourinho during the 2-1 Super Cup final defeat to Real Madrid in Macedonia on Tuesday. Bench options Kurt Zouma and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have also been loaned out.

Since being drenched in champagne by his jubilant players at the climax of their title-winning campaign, Conte has become embroiled in disputes with his employers over a new contract and transfer issues. They say you must sign and freshen up when you're at you're strongest, and Chelsea certainly haven't done that.

Chelsea completed the club record £60m signing of Spain striker Morata, 24, on a five-year deal last month.

'For sure the teams you named are very strong (City, United, Arsenal), they have improved a lot and for us, the challenge will be very tough.
