Antonio Conte may have been very public about his frustrations in the transfer market while a Chelsea manager, especially this season, but his plight will be heightened on any manager that replaces him at Stamford Bridge, according to the Evening Standard.
The Blues are not in the best shape and squad depth has been a major problem for the London based side who were looking to put up a better fight for their title defense.
With his side struggling, the Italian manager may feel vindicated after his constant complains that their business in the transfer windows have been poor and below big club status, insisting he and his technical team will suffer to get the best of the players this season.
The report by the Standard reveals Chelsea’s hope of raising £1.2 billion to facilitate their stadium building plans will affect the budget for the transfer windows approaching.
Roman Abramovich is unwilling to release cash for the stadium, and Chelsea is looking at lending companies to come to their rescue.
With staggering amounts like £850 million being quoted as what the Blues top hierarchy may be asking for, it will be tough for the next Chelsea coach to get a top budget to work with.
The worrying sign here is that for Chelsea fans, they may have to get used to this, as this is fast becoming a trend. Jose Mourinho also made such claims before leaving in 2015, following his title win as well.
