Carragher: 'Conte to quit Chelsea after Matic joined Man United'

Is Antonio Conte destined for the exit door?

The former England worldwide highlights Chelsea's sale of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United as a key factor with the Italian manager reportedly having grown frustrated with his club's performance in this summer's transfer market.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says he will be "very surprised" if Antonio Conte is still Chelsea manager in 12 months time.

Chelsea have a certain business model - a very ruthless one.

That's about it, really, yet Gazzetta dello Sport aren't letting it go, warning their readers about the big bad Premier League money that could break up the Serie A side's squad, as the Chelsea manager continues to try and seduce Candreva. It's a bit like Real Madrid where they don't value the manager like other clubs do.

Though the west London club have spent nearly £130m bringing in Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger and Alvaro Morata, their arrivals have coincided with the departure of some 17 players, including Nemanja Matic who joined arch rivals Manchester United in a £40m deal. Since Abramovich came in I think they've won more trophies than anyone.

'Maybe that is a frustration for Conte.

"'But they'll be saying "£45m for a 29-year-old and we've got a replacement (Bakayoko) who is 22". If you're a manager why would you want to let him go - especially to a rival?

With the champions offloading so many players and so far failing to replace them, former Blues stopper Mark Schwarzer believes Chelsea could be in for a disastrous second season similar to that of Jose Mourinho's second spell at the club, as reported by the Daily Star.

"I think he's the type of manager who won't accept the involvement from people above, especially on the back of winning the title", Carragher added when speaking to Sky Sports.

But, wherever Chelsea fans look on Tuesday morning, the story doing the rounds is that Antonio Conte is ready to quit the Blues.
