If this is really what happened, then no wonder Chelsea didn't get any of Ox or Barkley. And I am fine with it. And this backs what I thought happened. Conte could not lie to Ox that he would be hired to play as a CM. So he took his wares elsewhere.

Antonio Conte kept out of Ross Barkley deal
Image

Antonio Conte’s failure to speak to Ross Barkley while the midfielder contemplated a move to Chelsea on transfer deadline day last week was the result of direct instructions from the club.

The Times has learnt that Chelsea decided to keep the head coach away from transfer negotiations after his unsuccessful talks with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain the same week, which ended with the Arsenal midfielder opting to join Liverpool.

Chelsea’s tactics backfired however, as Barkley chose to return to Everton to continue his rehabilitation from a hamstring tear and is instead expected to seek a transfer in January. Contrary to reports, the 23-year-old player did not get anywhere near Stamford Bridge or Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham. He is believed to have changed his mind about the move en route from Liverpool to London, a decision at least partially influenced by his failure to speak to Conte.


Barkley had asked to speak to Conte to seek clarification about the Italian’s plans for him after Everton accepted a £35 million bid from Chelsea last Thursday, but a call never materialised. Conte’s relations with the Chelsea board have been tense throughout a difficult summer in which there has been considerable disagreement over transfer business and he is not believed to have had an active role in speaking to targets when the deadline neared last week.

Conte had told Oxlade-Chamberlain that he would be competing with Victor Moses for the right wing-back spot if he moved to Stamford Bridge, which was instrumental in him deciding to join Liverpool where Jürgen Klopp has promised him the chance to play in central midfield, but Chelsea have been careful not to blame Conte for missing out on the player as they seek to improve relations now the window has closed.

Conte did not speak to Danny Drinkwater on deadline day either before his late £35 million move from Leicester City, with all of Chelsea’s transfer business conducted by Michael Emenalo, the technical director, and Marina Granovskaia, a director.

Chelsea intend to make another attempt to sign Barkley during the January transfer window and are hopeful of being successful at the second attempt, but will face competition from Tottenham Hotspur.

The club’s position is that they respect Barkley’s reasons for wanting more time to consider his future despite the oversight of failing to put him in touch with their head coach.

Eden Hazard has urged Diego Costa to end his stand-off with Chelsea on the day that the striker was left out of their Champions League squad.

Chelsea hope to maximise Costa’s value in the January market by ensuring that he is not cup-tied, though Atletico Madrid, the striker’s preferred destination, are in the same group. Costa was named in Chelsea’s squad for the Premier League on Friday and has been told to return to training from his home in Brazil despite being told by Conte in June that he was no longer in his plans.

“Diego and I have been playing together for three years, we have won everything together except for the Champions League,” said Hazard, who continued his recovery from a broken ankle by playing in both Belgium’s World Cup qualifiers in the past week.

“It’s a pleasure to play with him, he’s a top player and a top person. I would like to see him come back, but I don’t make the decisions. I hope he can find a solution so that we can see him back on the pitch soon.”

Hazard has sometimes flirted with a move to Real Madrid and admitted that he would still like to play in Spain. “At the moment I’m good in England,” the 26-year-old midfielder said. “I play for one of the best teams, but yes, La Liga is special. Why not? Of course, for the moment, I’ll stay here. At this moment Real are the best team in the world.”

He is not good enough to start with abeg! By the way why would Drinkwater leave Leicester where he is a pillar to come and keep the bench warm at Chelsea?

He is still out injured.

He should let his performance dictate if he starts at Chelsea.

On Drinkwater, money and world cup. He will not displace Dier or Henderson for England at Leicester. The annoying thing is that he will chop bench at Chelsea.

This makes me sad but I understand why. Morata needs to improve his ball holding ability and physical condition
He falls too much. Would have been nice to have Diegoaround too but that's not to be, oh well. Thanks Diego for your service. Sad it ended this way but u were sure a loyal soldier on the pitch for CFC every single time I played. Good luck in ur future pursuits

Hmmm.. Be like Chelsea juju take style strong
1. Mendy out with season ending ACL tear
2. Aguerro got into an accident last night in Amsterdam after attending a concert. Most likely out for saturday's game and maybe longer. Not sure why he was allowed to have a night that far out while in middle of a 3 game week.

Will be interesting to see how CFC lines up. I like the 3-5-2 with Cesc in MF & Hazard partnering Morata. Just wonder if the boyz have anything left in the tank to get a W vs. City. The SB faithfuls will have to fuel the players with energy boost.

I hope Conte can bench Cahill and play Rudiger and Christensen with Azpi and keep the rest of the 3-5-2 as was against Atletico
We should be able to beat City at home. Their record at SB is not great anyway

Looks like in Luiz's absence, Christensen is the natural replacement in the middle of the back 3. He is more comfortable on the ball - distribution and bringing out of defense compared to Cahill or Rudiger. I stand corrected. Will see what back Conte goes with

Cahill is the least comfortable playing the ball out of the back. I rate Rudiger and Christensen higher
