Chelsea are hoping the last two months of the Premier League go as planned. It so, it would see Conte lift the Premier League in his first year in charge. There is also the FA Cup which Chelsea are favourites though there are threats in Man City, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. Conte could really do the double in his first year.

The Suning Group – owners of Inter – have pencilled Rodriguez as one of the club’s top target as they seek to rebuild the team.
