Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois wants Antonio Conte future settled, big investment

Saturday's FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United was the best moment in a frustrating season as Chelsea failed to build on last season's league triumph, with a tepid title defence underpinned by background tension that leaves many speculating that Conte will soon leave. The rapid collapse in the English Premier League made Conte's future look increasingly precarious.

Asked if he could have tried harder to enjoy a more stable relationship with his Chelsea superiors, Conte answered: "It's not simple, it's not simple to answer this question".

"I congratulate them but I don't think they deserved to win", Mourinho told the BBC. I repeat, as I said before, I can not change my personality, I can not change my idea of football.

Olivier Giroud improved the team greatly, but by the New Year, Chelsea's hopes of regaining the Premier League title were gone.

The Manchester United boss joined the social media network when he was appointed at Old Trafford back in 2016 and his first post was of his United contract, alongside the message: 'Manchester United Football Club. We have to play strong defensively if we want to win a trophy or take a place in the Champions League. On that note and with players like Neymar, Lewandowski, and Griezmann being backed to make big-money moves, here are three players whom you could see coming to Chelsea this window. "When I go to watch Manchester United play I want to see the Harlem Globetrotters of football, at the minute if they were playing out there I wouldn't pay to see them", he said, pointing roughly in the direction of the TV3 auto park.

I won't let two tough games shooting keep me frustrated'. "I mean, you can't do that with these guys". The win was a record 16th straight playoff victory at home for the Warriors at Oracle Arena.

He has not been as effective this season for Chelsea as he was past year - but none of the Blues players have been.

Having said that, if Conte does leave Stamford Bridge in the next few weeks, then he is going as a successful manager with a league title and FA Cup from his two seasons in charge.

"At the same time it's an FA Cup and we've won a trophy this year, which a number of teams haven't managed to do". I'm very happy for the players, I'm very happy for our fans. I'm the first to accept every decision for the future.

Alexis Sanchez, meanwhile, cut a frustrated figure at Wembley by sitting away from his United teammates as Chelsea's players picked up the trophy. "We're delighted to have the best here and Griezmann is one of them". I'm the coach of a great, important club, in England and the world.
