With Diego Costa’s Chelsea future looking increasingly uncertain, Antonio Conte’s thoughts must quickly turn to life after the talented Spaniard…
Costa has been in stunning form this season, and to be fair – Chelsea have been heavily reliant upon him. He has already scored 14 goals, and he was vital as Chelsea turned their form around earlier in the campaign.
However, Conte can’t be seen to let unhappy players run amuck around Stamford Bridge, and he is only going to have a negative impact amongst the players within the side – so a departure could very well be the best course of action.
The damage dealt by his departure will be shielded should Conte bring in an adequate replacement, and if the Express are to be believed – he has lined up quite the player. Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller is reportedly being considered by Conte in a £75 million deal – and what a move it would be.
With 20 goals in the Bundesliga last year, Muller is undoubtedly one of Europe’s best – and he would be perfect at Chelsea.
With that said, could this be the potential new-look Chelsea attack under Conte including £75m star Thomas Muller?
