According to the official release of FC Chelsea the new head coach of the club will be Italian Antonio Conte. The contract is supposed to be for three years. Italian professional will start the job in July right after the end of the Euro 2016. The president of the London club mentioned many times that Conte achieved a lot both as a player and as a coach.
46 year old specialist will be the fifth Italian coach in the history of FC Chelsea. It is also talked that Conte will make some changes in the club tactics as well as will try to get one of the top players in the world right now. English club renewed its interest towards Armenian national team and Borussia Dortmund player Henrikh Mkhitaryan. I am not afraid to say that Mkhitaryan even overcame Ronaldo and Messi this season.
He is always in the right place to make assists and score goals. The Blues failed to obtain Armenian international last year for £46 million but they are ready to offer even more this time. The gossips talk about £60 million.
This season the Armenian played in 29 Bundesliga matches, where scored 11 goals, made 13 assists. During Europe League 15 matches he scored 7 goals, and help the teammates to score 9 times.
FC Chelsea is also concentrated on getting Argentine midfielder Javier Pastore who currently plays at Paris Saint-Germain. This season was very problematic for the player. He missed most of the season because of the injuries. Manchester City FC, FC Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich are also interested in the services of 26-year-old player.
However, the Blues believe that new additions will help the club to get out of this severe period. Let me remind that the club is now on the 9th place in Premier League table.
