Antonio Conte will probably have left Chelsea within 12 months - Jamie Carragher

The Blues boss has aired his views publicly about the club's lack of transfer activity and hinted that Nemanja Matic may have been sold against his wishes.

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. Carragher deems that despite Conte's success in winning the Premier League in his first season at the club, Abramovic will not hesitate to sack the manager after twelve months.

Carragher compared the Blues to Real Madrid saying that they are never afraid to get rid of managers, highlighted by the fact that under owner Roman Abramovich they have had nine different managers (including Jose Mourinho twice) as well as Guus Hiddink as interim on two occasions.

And former Liverpool defender Carragher says these problems could boil over at Chelsea, who "don't value managers", and where a great deal of transfer dealings are taken by the club's hierarchy rather than the manager.

Speaking on The Debate on Sky Sports on Monday Night, Carragher said: "The Matic deal is a flawless example".

"They've had a lot of distractions and I think they could have moved on from all of this if they signed an adequate replacement".

Much like their stance on Ivan Perisic to Manchester United, Inter have fixed a price for the 30-year-old, but fortunately for the Blues, it's a lot lower than what they're asking for for the Croatia global.

Is Antonio Conte destined for the exit door?

Conte cut a frustrated figure as his side suffered defeat to London rivals Arsenal in Sunday's Community Shield game at Wembley Stadium - their second straight loss to the Gunners following their FA Cup final defeat last season.

And Conte wants more signings after 17 players left the club sine the end of last season. Despite the additions to Chelsea's squad, there are still qualms that the title winners will not have enough depth for their Champions League campaign this season.
