Antonio Conte hints at fourth Chelsea summer signing

Posted July 24, 2017

Morata had previously been linked with a move to Manchester United, but their interest ended after the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton.

And according to The Sun, Antonio Conte has switched his attention to Inter Milan wide man Antonio Candreva. Pre-season is very important.

Conte went on to speak about his new contract, which will see him at the club till at least 2019, insisting that such short durations keep up the motivation and help drive him on.

Pedro will return home from Chelsea's pre-season tour after he suffered concussion during Saturday's friendly victory over Arsenal. 'That will not put me down after what happened last season and how I stood up to it. It wasn't easy for me because sometimes when you win you think that everything is easy but it wasn't to win and to have this type of season.

"I think every single player must improve in this [being personalities in the dressing room] and take more responsibility because we lost big players and we need now to find these new players to create this fundamental for Chelsea". We found the right view about the future of this club. "We need to improve and increase our squad to be something important for the present, and also for our future".

Speaking about the player's situation, Conte made it clear the writing has been on the wall for the striker for a while.

"I can want this, but if I'm alone it's very hard to do this. The Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world and I'm so happy to be here". They are coming. My family is very important.

The west London outfit said on Wednesday they had agreed a deal to sign the 24-year-old who has now passed his medical and will join the squad on their pre-season tour of Asia. The Spain striker even showed off a text message exchange with his manager confirming as much.

"In Singapore, Rudiger and Morata will arrive, maybe someone else", said Conte to the Daily Mail. We must be happy for the commitment of players and with our football.
