New Nike Contract on 1st July Could Signal New Signings.
According to Evening Standard Chelsea are set to announce a mystery signing on 1st July.
Our source speculates it will be Manchester City`s out of contract goalkeeper Willy Caballero.
On another note, freelance journalist and very well-respected Chelsea writer Dan Levene, talking on Talksport earlier was discussing recent goings on.
On Conte leaving, he was of the opinion that a speculative story that started in Italy had become 'the gospel` as it translated its way across Europe. Wishful thinking by the media, I guess.
On the lack of transfer dealings, he believes deals are being negotiated. He also mentioned the fact that officially the transfer window is not yet open in some countries, and that Chelsea`s sponsorship contract with Adidas runs until the end of June. From the start of July any new signings will be able to hold up a crisp new Nike Shirt.
These could indeed be reasons for no transfer action as of yet. As fans, we are keen to see that Antonio Conte really is being given the full backing of Roman and the board. Until the whole Diego Costa saga plays out, it`s difficult to tell. One thing Dan Levene was certain of though, was that Diego will be Diegone!
