In his first season with the Blues, Conte masterminded a brilliant campaign, leading the West Londoners to the Premier League title.

He has also admitted that he is homesick and wants to return back to Italy, with reports in his homeland suggesting he could be offered a return to the role of Italian national team head coach, the job he did before arriving at Chelsea.

"I think from the start of this season there are a lot of speculation and rumours".

"But, at the same time, I know this never happened in the past, so why should I hope for something different?"

Antonio Conte has said he would appreciate a public statement of support from the Chelsea hierarchy amid renewed speculation that he could be sacked, adding that he is open to the possibility of holding talks about a contract extension in the summer. But I'd be glad. You only have one person to speak [to make this happen].

FIGC vice-commissioner Alessandro Costacurta claimed he was on his way to London to hold talks with his ex-international teammate. "To keep secret. To keep secret, yes".

Chelsea travel to Watford on Monday, 19 points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City following their 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Wednesday.

As reported by the Telegraph, the Italian has told the club exactly how they can catch Pep Guardiola's side next season. "It's not simple, not simple".

"I'm giving all of myself for this club", he insisted.

Chelsea play last this weekend, which is good in that it gives Conte & Co a couple extra days to rest, recover, and figure out some new solutions in training, but is bad in that we could very well be out of the top four by the time kick-off arrives. "If you compare to the other clubs, we have fewer injuries", he said. But especially for this reason, you have to understand that only through a great work, a big work, can you go and try to be closer to these teams who maybe don't have this type of financial problems. In the same way, with the players.
