Roman Abramovich considering keeping Antonio Conte at Chelsea on one condition




Roman Abramovich is considering keeping Antonio Conte even if Chelsea fail to secure Champions League football for next season, according to reports.

The Premier League champions currently sit fifth in the Premier League, five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with nine games remaining.

Chelsea also faces a difficult task in the Champions League after their 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the first leg of their last-16 tie at Stamford Bridge. Conte will still have one year remaining on his contract with Chelsea this summer, although reports have suggested that the club will sack the Italian at the end of the season.

But The Sun claims that Abramovich is willing to keep Conte at Stamford Bridge if he stops questioning the club’s transfer policy.

In recent months, Conte has been keen to stress that he plays little part in selecting Chelsea’s transfer targets and was unhappy with the failure to sign Alexis Sanchez and Virgil van Dijk.

Conte also cause friction with Chelsea’s hierarchy over his handling of Diego Costa’s exit last summer. ‘These days Roman wants to give his managers every opportunity,’ a source at Chelsea told The Sun. ‘The stress point could be if Antonio starts complaining again. ‘People are growing weary of it all.’
