Chelsea has been dented in the everlasting pursuit of cementing a deal with a successor for Antonio Conte.

Whilst there’s no confirmed news over a potential deal, there’s still a huge mountain to climb for Chelsea in replacing Conte. The Blues head coach had also been targeted to take charge of PSG so it’s also bad news for the Italian, who will want his future cleared up soon.
