Chelsea’s managerial post has been filled by interim manager Guus Hiddink since Jose Mourinho was sacked in December, the club had been looking for a permanent manager for the club. According to reports from the French website Le10 Sport, Antonio Conte’s move to Chelsea is a done deal and only thing remaining is the signature of the manager in a contract.
Le10 Sport further states in that Chelsea are already looking out for players who will fit Conte’s requirements. The Blues are looking out to sign Blaise Matuidi from Paris Saint-Germain on Conte’s request.
A Box-to box midfielder, Matuidi is one of the key members in PSG. Although he has not been able to live up to the standards set last year, he is still considered to be one of the top players in the Ligue 1 side. Le10 Sport further suggests that the Blues have already enquired about the availability of the player and it will take a hefty amount to convince PSG to let go of Matuidi.
