Chelsea boss Antonio Conte believes his team still needs a few world-class players to close the gap to the Premier League‘s leaders.
The Premier League champions are in a battle to claim a top-four berth, sitting fourth in the EPL table with just two points ahead of Tottenham.
The Stamford Bridge outfit secure the services of six players in the close-season, but runaway Manchester City outspent the London club. The Cityzens spent £225m on six defenders, an enormous fund that outweighs 52 countries defence budget.
Conte said the club needed to abstain from rolling out such huge changes to their squad, demanding their target ought to be on adding top-class players.
“Now we have to struggle to fight for a Champions League place – that is top. We must be realistic. We must be strong to accept this type of situation,” the Italian told UK newspapers.
“Then, in the future, if there is the possibility, you have to try to buy only two or three players – not eight players.“Don’t forget, this summer, we brought in eight players and spent a lot less than other teams who bought only two or three.”
Conte’s future at Stamford Bridge is also reportedly uncertain ahead of his side’s trip to Watford Monday.
