The rumours linking Antonio Candreva with a move to Chelsea have been back again strongly as Chelsea seek to strengthen their squad before the close of the transfer window.

However, Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has again reiterated that Candreva wouldn’t be sold by the club.

“My position is to keep him and the club agrees with me, for now he has not given any other signs,” Spalletti told reporters on Saturday.

“We go forward calmly, but I don’t know what could happen tomorrow. As far as I can tell, Chelsea could try to do something. You are the ones who always anticipate these situations, so I should ask you.

“You are very good at writing names in the papers and getting people swept up in it. I had fallen for it too this time, when you talked about [Arturo] Vidal and [Alexis] Sanchez, I was there staring at the gate to see if they would walk in. Then I pinched myself.

“The truth is, I am happy with what I’ve got, four or five players have left and as many came in. Naturally, if you can get world-class players, it provides an advantage because they are immediately ready to give results, but when you have great players who are just about to become world-class, it depends on communication and how ready they are.”
