We’ve come to the stage of the season where players whose contracts are getting due tend to be offered new contracts and where the club show more interest in new signings.
Chelsea will be in four competitions next season, and the Blues will need to sign more players and also extend the contracts of certain important players.
According to reports, Chelsea are struggling to negotiate a new deal for Nemanja Matic.
The Serbia international’s current deal is due to expire in the summer of 2018. Matic has been a key part of Conte’s team this season, and according to the Daily Mail, his future remains uncertain.
It is said the Blues aren’t close to thrashing out a new deal for the 28-year-old, while the report adds that Manchester United are still exploring a potential move.
