Tight transfer budget predicted for Conte successor at Chelsea

May JohnsonApr 29, 2018

Antonio Conte has revealed that Gary Cahill will feature in his plans until the end of the season to give the England worldwide some extra exposure and the best possible chance of making Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad.

It is that sort of pedigree that makes the 32-year-old an obvious pick for Southgate in Russian Federation, according to Conte, who led Italy to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016.

Cahill remains Chelsea's captain, a role he took on full-time following John Terry's departure previous year and Conte suggested a period of adjustment has been necessary in the club icon's absence. He's in good physical condition.

Chelsea great, Michael Essien, has urged his former club to keep faith with head coach Antonio Conte despite their struggles this term.

Arsenal departure 'not my decision', reveals Arsene Wenger
But, at the moment, I work like ever. "I have always had great admiration for Arsene", Gunners supporter Hamilton told reporters. The Reds have won 26 of our matches against Wenger's Arsenal , drawing 15 and losing 18.

Luiz held a big birthday bash in London earlier this week to celebrate turning 31, which was attended by several of the Chelsea players. These attributes were in evidence at Wembley last weekend when Chelsea beat Southampton 2-0 to advance to the FA Cup final and Cahill also put in a robust display, galvanising his team as they'd ground out a 2-1 win away at Burnley in a league match three days prior to the Saints game.

Conte said: "I think Gary is deserving to play - to play and then to have the chance to go and play in the World Cup. I think Gary deserves to play".

With Champions League qualification unlikely this season there could be a number of high-profile exits at Stamford Bridge this summer. I'm sure that the coach will take the best decision for the national team. "I think he deserves this".

It's been a hard season for the likeable defender for he reportedly had a falling out with Conte as Chelsea made a disastrous start to their title defence and a subsequent knee injury has kept him out of first-team action since then.
