Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte has signed a new and improved two year deal with Chelsea.
This is a breath of fresh air to the Chelsea faithfuls who has been hanging in the wind in regards to Conte long term future.

Fresh questions was raised about Conte longer-term status after being frustrated with the club’s failure to sign identified target e.g. Romelu Lukaku, and also the future of Diego Costa’s future which also caused tension. Conte informed Costa by text message that he was not in his plans.

Chelsea and Conte expressed delight at an enhanced new deal that is believed to be worth £19.2 million until 2019, the previous expectation of a more lengthy commitment, potentially until 2021, has not been realized. The club also announced on Tuesday that they will appoint two of Conte’s compatriots to his coaching staff. The first being Paolo Vanoli as first team assistant and David Mazzotta will work as an assistant with particular responsibility for player analysis.” Diego Costa and midfielder Nemanja Matic are both absent from the squad that traveled to Asia.
Pep Guardiola begins offload in Manchester City. He plans to offload players who has not lived up to expectations irrespective of the huge money spent clear-out.

Joe Hart will spend this season on loan with West Ham united. Manchester City had hoped to sell the England goalkeeper who's costing the club £4.5 million annually. City had to waive the loan fee for the deal to go through. 

City are trying to offload a stockpile of unwanted players this summer as potential suitors refuse to meet their valuations.

City wants to sell Wilfried Bony, Eliaquim Mangala, Fernando, Samir Nasri, Fabian Delph, and Jason Denayer this summer and are willing listen to offers for goalkeeper Claudio Bravo as plans are underway bring current Napoli short stopper and former Liverpool No. 1 Pepe Reina in as cover for new signing Ederson Moraes.

City are demanding €25 million (£21 million) each a few months ago for Nasri and Mangala, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla and Valencia respectively, but they have been forced to drop the valuation of these players for deals to be able to go through.

The doping allegation has not done so well for Samir Nasri valuation, the France Midfielder who has two years left on his contract, valuation has been dropped £10 million. Manchester City has been offered Mangala to Sevilla and AC Milan and are ready to offload him for £18 million, that's a paltry sum for the person who cost the club an eye-watering £42 million from Porto three years ago. 
City are hoping to making a profit from Fabian Delph by asking for £15 million for Delph, from Stoke city who are interested in the player they got from Villa for less than £10 million. 
Swansea are interested in resigning Bony for £10 million for Bony, and Marseille is also keeping tabs on the Ivorian striker.

Galatasaray are in talks about signing Fernando but are only prepared to pay around £3 million for the midfielder, who has a year left on his contract following a £12 million move from Porto in 2014.

The Nigerian Kelechi Iheanacho is the one player City look set to get their asking price from Leicester City. The Nigeria striker is valued for £25 million.

Pep's Manchester City will be encouraged with the £10 million sale of midfielder Aaron Mooy to Huddersfield Town, Aaron was signed on a free transfer from sister club Melbourne City FC. They have also sold French midfielder Olivier Ntcham to Celtic for £4.5 million.

Denayer is not pleased with how city has proceeded with his transfer. The Belgium defender accused the club of pricing him out of a permanent move, as well as denying him a loan to Lyon as they would prefer he joined their Spanish sister club, Girona.

Douglas Luiz, the Brazil Under-20 midfielder signed last week for £12 million, Aleix Garcia and Pablo Maffeo are all expected to join Girona on loan.
