Chelsea’s performances throughout this season could easily be summed up in two matches — a 3-0 defeat to Newcastle and 1-0 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final match last night.
The Blues attack was nowhere close to perfect this term despite the acquisition of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud from Real Madrid and Arsenal respectively.
Though Conte was able to win another trophy with the Blues this season — his second trophy in a row, his career at Stamford Bridge could be as good as over this summer as Chelsea are reportedly in search of his replacement.
Despite not being able to get Conte’s replacement yet, the West London Club are ready to complete their first signing this summer as they are willing to make a £90m-deal for Atletico Madrid star striker Antoine Griezmann.
The Blues are looking too desperate to add more force to their striking department and they have made the Frenchman — alongside his compatriot Anthony Martial — their prime targets during the next transfer period which begins in some weeks time.
The Blues, in recent transfer windows, haven’t been splashing cash on players as one would expect but they might change that trend in the summer as they are willing to break their transfer record so as to lure the £90m-rated striker to Stamford Bridge.
The 27-year-old was in fine form for the Rojo Blancos in the just concluded season, helping the team to Europa Title. It will be interesting to see an attacking line which include Willian, Hazard and Griezmann in the upcoming season.
