Board meets today and apparently Antonio is on thin ice. There is no doubt his text to Costa could potentially cost the club 20 to 30 mil. All depends how stubborn Conte wants to be regards the club's transfer policy.

The charges for sending a text message are rocketing these days.

What's the 20 - 30 mil cost for?

nice to see you are jumping to conclusions  again , every man and his dog knew of  The Governors   intentions, of leaving , so cannot see where the club has lost that type of Moolah, on a couple texts, and the Brits,Italian  press  are running storys of Conte leaving for this and that ,plus The Governors bit, this is silly season , at risk of repeating my self, best to wait  until its a done deal by both partys, and if true C/sea surely will have plan  B in place, another  Manager  just par for the course with Roman,and he  has proven it works,   simply  he is THE BOSS,  and why not,, too many Huge Egoes(players/managers etc etc) at  most  EPL clubs,  think  they can dictate the clubs future, BUT not with Roman   ,its his way or the highway, high noon to all

Another manager engineering his way to the exit door? Collect £10 million plus on the way out. Thomas Tuschel, ex Dortmund boss, has shown himself to be a man of principle so you can rule him out. Luis Enrique will get the job.

Mad if Conte did that to get out of his contract. Mad that a manager who achieved what he did at Chelsea last season could be off.

Dunno if it's true but apparently Conte first sent a general text to all the players wishing happy hols but keep fit etc. Costa sent a flippant reply,  to which Conte responded with the " don't worry I don't want you here anyway" retort. Costa then went public.

Seems plausible considering Costa's character and makes more sense than a random text out of the blue.

 It,s a bit more involved than just the text messages Bob. Chelsea want to appoint a new number 2 probably from within its own set-up to replace Steve Holland ....Conte wants to appoint his own number 2 (rumoured to be  Pirlo ) plus he wants overall control of transfers.

It,s no coincidence that from all levels 1st Team right down to the under 9,s that they are all coached to play the same system....makes sense if that system is successful (which it is) to promote from within (like your old boot room).....so we can expect to see Jody Morris as our new coach anytime in the next 5 years :shock1:  :smile:

Spot on wilai.....at least 5 messages were exchanged between the pair......some not pleasant at all, so i was told.   All will be made available to the public.......for a price.

Fanfare of trumpets! Sky sources have announced that Chelsea are "in talks to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alex Sandro". Well, we've been in talks for weeks to sign these two but, given the excitement in the Sky studios, it looks like that their signatures will be penned very, very soon. From what I've seen, they will be excellent additions to the squad. If we can get Thomas Lemar and Douglas Costa as well this transfer window, I'll be ecstatic.

Don't count those chickens just yet:wink:

 

 

"Juventus have rejected the Chelsea offer for Sandro, which was worth 60 million euros."

Sandro set to sign new Juventus contract

There is now speculation in Italy that Sandro will sign a new contract until 2020 with Juventus and earn 3.5 million euros per season.

Gazzetta add that Juventus do not see a suitable replacement in the transfer market for Sandro, and are unwilling to let him go.

As a result, even an offer of 70 million euros from Chelsea will not be enough to persuade them to sell Sandro.
