Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has explained Chelsea are undergoing a rebuilding process this summer after losing important players like John Terry, John Mikel Obi, Branislav Ivanovic, Didier Drogba, Petr Cech and Frank Lampard.
“We have to understand that we have a situation where we are building with 11 players and now we have [Andreas] Christensen, Morata … but it’s not enough. We need more,” Conte said as quoted on Daily Mail.
“We arrived at this moment after finishing last season where I utilised only 13 players regularly and we won the League and arrived at the final of the FA Cup.
“But for sure, to face four competitions in a good way we need more players. The club knows this very well and they know better than me this situation and we are trying to find the right solution. But it’s not easy and in this market it’s [costing] crazy money to take a player.
“I don’t like to spend money only to spend. I need players with the right characteristics for my idea of football and to allow this group to grow.”
