Are Chelsea Trying to Sign Sanchez? Antonio Conte Says: “I Don’t Think So”

Are Chelsea Trying to Sign Sanchez? Antonio Conte Says: “I Don’t Think So”

Antonio Conte has thrown another twist into the Alexis Sanchez saga this afternoon by claiming Chelsea aren’t trying to sign the Chilean forward this month.

According to Sky Sports News last night, Conte’s Blues had emerged as Manchester United’s main opponents in the race for Sanchez’s signature, with the club’s hierarchy green-lighting a bid to match Jose Mourinho’s side’s offer.

Being already based in London, the prospect of simply moving across the city might well have appealed to Sanchez’s camp but if there’s any truth to the rumour then Conte is keeping his cards very close to his chest.

The Italian coach met with the media this afternoon ahead of his side’s FA Cup replay against Norwich City, and his reply when asked about Sanchez was straight to the point:

So, there you have it – it doesn’t look like Sanchez will be heading to Stamford Bridge any time soon, unless Conte is brilliant at bluffing.

Where do you think he’ll end up?
