Don’t know if there is any truth in the story but it certainly makes sense. Apparently we are opening up talks with Diego to offer him an extended contract with a pay rise of circa 50k per week
Have to say that assuming that Conte will see out his contract, and possibly extend it assuming we continue to do well, then it does seem as though Diego enjoys playing for him and in his formation so it is the obvious thing to do (IMO)
Guess that would leave a question mark over Michy as he may feel that he does not have much of a future at Chelsea but on the assumption that once we return to Europe we will remain in Europe then I could easily see Michy getting many more opportunities than he has had so far this year
Regardless, based on current form it is abundantly clear that Diego is the main man and we should do all we can to keep him for as long as possible. KTBFFH
As much as credit is given to Antonio Conte for turning Costa’s form and cleaning up his disciplinary record. i feel equally credit goes to Guus Hiddink as he turned Costa up to play as proper CF. Hiddink has done some great job about Costa and Hazard. and Conte has carried from there. both managers deserve equal credit. but Conte has gone far by sorting Courtois, the CM and the defence.
