Antonio Conte knows he has a trying season ahead of him as he looks to bolster his squad. The manager, who recently sanctioned the exit of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United, is apparently angered at the club’s board over the somewhat lack of incoming transfers at the club.
However, with the latest report making the round, it seems Conte is about to be placated as Chelsea are set to place a big money offer for a much sought-after defender.
The Sun reports that Roman Abrahimovich is on the cusp of sanctioning a £50 million(€55m) bid for Tottenham’s left wing back Danny Rose.
However, there are indications that the player wants to join Manchester United as he revealed that he would love to end up playing up North.
Rose granted an explosive interview recently in which he suggested he is paid peanuts compared to his contemporaries at other clubs, and the lack of top signings at the White Hart Lane. The issues he discussed have not been addressed though and it is now reported that he is willing to leave his current club.
Tottenham’s antecedent shows they object to selling their star players or do so only for a top fee, but a fee in the region of £50 million could yet force them to part ways with the £65k-a-week star.
Further report suggests that the Blues are willing to double his wage package but it remains to be seen if this deal will some into fruition.
