"I can tell (you) that Costacurta is a friend and we played together in the national team in 1994 (World Cup), but maybe he forgot that I still have 18 months on my contract with Chelsea", Conte said.

The performances too, have taken a hit and following a 3-0 loss to AFC Bournemouth during the midweek, Conte and Chelsea find themselves under serious pressure to finish in the UEFA Champions League spots come the end of the season.

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

"So it's a big challenge to change the approach now".

"I didn't expect anything to happen and, as it turns out, Chelsea have gone on to make a great signing".

Reports Conte is unhappy with the club's transfer strategy have been persistent, but the Italian accepts Chelsea can not necessarily buy the best players any more, instead requiring a focus on developing young talent.

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

"I think that we are doing the maximum for this club and if the club understands this and the club wants to extend a new contract then we can talk, why not?" The Sunday Express claim that the Italian could be sacked as early as next week, especially if his side lose to Watford in the Monday Night Football.

However, City's domination in the Premier League and off-field disputes have cast a cloud over Conte's second season at the club.

"So there I was, sat at home a couple of weeks ago, when my phone started to beep and I heard I was trending on Twitter", Crouch recalled in an interview with the Daily Mail. "If you compare to the other clubs, we have fewer injuries", he said.

"As you can see, we are working a lot with people like [Ethan] Ampadu, 17, and [Callum] Hudson-Odoi, 17".

"We have to create a basis; we have to build something important". In the summer, we welcomed the arrivals of Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Alvaro Morata, Davide Zappacosta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater.

The video features Katherine Lockler in the front seat of her auto coming off of a 12-hour shift at the hospital where she works. Her reasoning? If you go in there for one ailment, you'll probably catch another, namely the flu.
