According to The Times, Antonio Conte desperately wanted Virgil van Dijk and Alexis Sanchez at Chelsea.
Antonio Conte has urged his club to target fewer but higher quality signings in order to close the gap between the two Manchester clubs.
‘Now we have to struggle to fight for a Champions League place – that is top,’ said the Chelsea manager.
‘We must be realistic. We must be strong to accept this type of situation.
‘Then, in the future, if there is the possibility, you have to try to buy only two or three players – not eight players.
‘Don’t forget, this summer, we brought in eight players and spent a lot less than other teams who bought only two or three.
‘We have to create a basis; we have to build something important. To do this, you must have 15 or 16 players. In the summer, we changed eight players.
‘That means you don’t have a basis, a great foundation. We must have great patience to understand the moment.’
