Conte says that while he admires Vardy, the Blues have never approached the striker during his time at Stamford Bridge.

29 July 2017: Conte says that he must avoid "a Mourinho season" as the champions attempt to defend their Premier League title.

Allegri may be the longest-serving Juventus manager this century, but should the passionate boss have the chance to manage one of the Premier League's top clubs, he may well be tempted to jet over to these shores in the near future.

Chelsea are, thus, keeping their options open, with a number of managers being on the shortlist to replace Conte, the latest being compatriot Allegri.

Conte branded Mourinho a "little man" after Chelsea's goalless FA Cup third-round draw at Norwich on Saturday. Gennaro Gattuso is by no means guaranteed to remain in his post as Milan boss either, meaning there may be an opening at San Siro for the former Juve man. With the Rossoneri, the 50-year-old won the league title in his very first campaign, before achieving even more success upon joining Juventus in 2014. "I am improving a bit my English - because this is the real problem for me - otherwise, we can go, we can go to fight".

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed on Friday that he had a narrow escape when winds blew a glass table top off a roof terrace and onto his auto parked at the club's training base.

"I have another year on my contract at this club but, in football, everything is possible". "But remember, when you wind Mourinho up, he's very clever in these debate situations". I have a lot of experience in dealing with this type of situation but there is something unusual if after the first game, which we lost against Burnley, the press push quickly to sack me.

Conte said: "I said "hello".

Their ongoing rivalry recently culminated in a war of words, with each manager taking swipes at the other and demeaning each other's character, only adding to the anticipation of the next Manchester United versus Chelsea game.

As for Conte, should he leave London this summer as is widely reported, he will undoubtedly be linked with a return to the national side as they still seek a replacement for Giampiero Ventura.
