Despite winning the Premier League title, it does not appear as though Antonio Conte is going to rest on his laurels in the summer transfer window.

The Sun cite OK Diario in reporting that Chelsea lead the race to sign Real Madrid star James Rodriguez.

OK Diario believe that the Blues will face competition from Premier League counterparts Manchester United, but the Premier League champions are thought to be favourites to secure his services.

According to OK Diario, talks are already underway to bring Rodriguez to Stamford Bridge, but a summer switch to Man United is still not out of the equation.

It remains to be seen how much Rodriguez will cost any potential suitors, but it is encouraging to be linked with players of his standard. From a Chelsea perspective, we can hope that the club’s hierarchy have learned from the mistakes of the 2015/16 campaign, and we’re in for a busy summer.
