Antonio Conte’s future hasn’t been sorted out by the Blues hierarchy and that seems to be the major reason why the club are yet to complete any player’s signature at the ongoing transfer window.
According to Sheth, the West London outfits are presently faced with the task of getting a new manager, they, therefore, have no time to discuss on whom they would love to lure to the Stamford Bridge stadium before the start of the upcoming season.
Though the former Premier League Champions were linked with some players, they haven’t made any progression in their dealings with other clubs.
They are currently linked with Ligue 1 defender Jean-Micheal Serie, who plays for Nice and they are reportedly close to completing a deal for the Ivorian player.
The Sky Sports News reporter suggests that the Blues could have sealed the deal before now but they are too busy trying to sort out Conte’s future before the start of next season.
According to Seth, Jean-Michael Seri is set to move out of the Ligue 1 side this summer but the Blues must improve their negotiations with their counterparts so as to Beat United to his signature.
If reports emanating from the Stamford Bridge via Daily Express are anything to go by, the Blues will terminate Conte’s contract before the end of this month while they would offer Maurizio Sarri a two-year contract.
