The expected arrival of Monaco midfielder Timoue Bakayoko could limit the playing time of Serbian international Nemanja Matic at Stamford Bridge.
Matic is reportedly pushing for a move to Manchester United this summer because he fears he is now surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.
However, a report on Metro UK claim Chelsea still want to keep hold of Nemanja Matic and tie him down to a new contract amid rumoured transfer interest from rivals Manchester United.
According to the report, Conte still wants Matic at Chelsea because he is looking at bolstering his squad depth instead of replacing his current first XI altogether.
Chelsea reportedly want to avoid losing Matic to a rival and hope to tie him down to a new deal.
