Matic is a 'gross loss' for us, admits Chelsea boss Conte

Tiemoue Bakayoko

The 28-year-old completed a move to Old Trafford on July 31 for £40million after winning the Premier League title with the Blues last term.

One hilarious video was shared showing two men slapping each other in the face, with one person writing "Chelsea fans to each other as they see Matic".

Speaking in an exclusive interview with The Sport Review, BT Sport pundit Lampard said: "I think Matic [himself] personally maybe wanted to move on".

And Steve De La Cour said that Chelsea are a "weird selling club", highlighting that they also sold goalkeeper Petr Cech to rivals Arsenal.

"But sometimes I think you must accept this insane transfer market".

"So I think they're in a real good position, the squad looks strong and I think how Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Lukaku play will determine what happens". He's available, can we get him?' I think Chelsea more often than not have backed their managers and brought in the players needed.

It is no secret that Conte needs and wants more players to work with at Chelsea.

Chelsea have made four signings - Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger and Willy Caballero - this summer, while allowing Matic, Nathan Ake, Asmir Begovic, Nathaniel Chalobah, John Terry, Kurt Zouma and Ruben Loftus-Cheek to leave either permanently or on loan. I hope to be able to improve our squad. We want to be competitive and we want to fight for the title again.

"It won't be easy". The Italian has spoken very openly and optimistically about club-record signing Morata.

Conor wrote that Matic is the "signing of the season". I want to play West Ham - a hard match - then go to Swansea for another hard match.

Asked if he would start against Burnley on Saturday, Conte said: "He's working very well and starting to understand our idea of football". "They've been doing that for years by buying younger players and trying to improve them, and I think Bakayoko, if he keeps improving, he is going to be a serious signing".
