News of discontent behind the scenes has come as a shock to Chelsea fans, with many voicing their displeasure that no transfer business has been completed yet.
One fan on Twitter wrote: ‘Conte overachieved with this squad in his first season. Signing some top quality players is the least Chelsea could do for him.’
Another posted: ‘Conte won the title with a team that finished 10th, with very few reinforcements. If the board won’t back him, he has every right to walk.’
