The reasoning for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte falling out with the Blues hierarchy is reportedly due to the Italian being told his summer transfer spending would have to be generated by first selling some of his stars who helped secure the Blues sixth league title.
This ultimately led to the infamous text to star striker Diego Costa who was told he was no longer part of his manager's plans moving forward, infuriating both the player and the club's board.
As reported by the Mirror, Conte has been offloading his frustrations
Feel for Conte. Chelsea will face the heat if you don't get the player he wants. Hell leave like he left Juventus let alone you sacking him— The Chelsea Dugout (@bp_cfc) June 13, 2017
With targets such as Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng, Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, and Juventus left back Alex Sandro likely to set the club back by £200m, Abramovich wants a tighter spending spree which is likely to delay Chelsea's summer plans
With their rivals already sanctioning a number of deals, Chelsea will be hoping to resolve the issue with their star manager sooner rather than later if they are to successfully defend their league title and make a serious challenge in next season's Champions League.
