Nemanja Matic Sale a Casualty of "Crazy Transfer Market", Says Antonio Conte

Diego Costa Liverpool

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had an answer, pointing to Chelsea sending numerous players out on loan, while former England captain turned pundit Alan Shearer said there was "something brewing which isn't nice" at Stamford Bridge.

Conte was asked by a reporter at his press conference for an update on Costa and he responded: "I don't know". This is my message.

"The situation is clear and I stop". If the club decide to send the players on loan for their development it is because these players are not ready to play for Chelsea.

Conte kept his counsel on Chelsea's transfer business, with the summer window open until August 31.

Groves said: "Antonio Conte will not be manager of Chelsea at Christmas - fact".

"When he was already with the Spain national team [for a friendly against Colombia last June] and before travelling to Brazil to enjoy his holidays, he was released from Chelsea by SMS by the coach Antonio Conte".

The Serbian's Premier League experience could prove to be a world's difference as Blues wait for the summer arrival Bakayoko to hit the ground running.

"My only task is to focus on the pitch, what happens on the pitch, during the training session to work with my players".

"To come to a club like Chelsea and be number one, and to have to follow someone who's done it very well in Diego Costa, there's pressure. It's important to try and do our best".

Nemanja Matic is not exactly a headline grabber and the most exciting player in the Premier League but the Serbian global comes with bags of quality, experience and a winning mentality all of which Chelsea lost having sold him to league rivals Manchester United. Earlier this month, Chelsea gifted Matic to rivals Manchester United for £40million, while last season's top scorer Diego Costa is now in limbo at Stamford Bridge having been exiled by the Italian boss.

Conte was unable to offer an update on his situation.

Costa's absence, coupled with injuries to Eden Hazard and Pedro Rodriguez, means that Conte is likely to pick both Michy Batshuayi and club-record signing Alvaro Morata in his starting XI against Burnley.

A Chelsea spokesman intervened, saying: "Nothing to report on that".

New Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has spoken out about the early criticism he's received since his big-money move from Real Madrid.

Antonio Rudiger could come in for Moses, with Cesar Azpilicueta pushing forwards to right wing-back.
