Jamie Carragher Reckons Antonio Conte Won't Last Much Longer At Chelsea

Above all, the former Champions League victor believes that the current Blues manager has been ignored during the summer transfer window and will not put up with the board calling the shots over who the club should or should not bring into the team for much longer.

Indeed, Carragher cites Matic's sale to Manchester United as a prime example of why Conte might leave the club.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has tipped Antonio Conte to leave Chelsea within a year, according to Sky Sports.

Roman Abramovich's carries a ruthless reputation for sacking managers.

Over the years past managers such as Carlo Ancelotti, Luiz Felipe Scolari and Claudio Ranieri have all been released, while Manchester United's boss Jose Mourinho has been axed on two separate occasions.

Conte joined Chelsea last summer after leaving his role with the Italian national team and in his first season with the club he led them to the Premier League title. They are bit like Real Madrid in this sense - they don't value the manager like other clubs, ' he continued. Since Abramovich came in I think they've won more trophies than anyone.

"The Matic deal is a ideal example", Carragher said on Sky Sports" "The Debate' on Monday. If you're a manager why would you want to let him go - especially to a rival? We don't know how good [Bakayoko] is going to be, but that has been their business model going forward.

"The success they've had in changing managers... they're not going to take anything off Conte".

Despite landing the aforementioned 23-year-old youngster Tiemoue Bakayoko, along with Antonio Rudiger and Alvaro Morata, they have been beaten to some key targets - one of which being Romelu Lukaku, who made the move to Old Trafford instead of returning to Stamford Bridge.

"They have a model where they have a big say over how that club is run; the owner, [technical director] Michael Emenalo and people involved there".

"Maybe that is a frustration for Conte".

Chelsea are getting much closer to this situation, as they search for a long term replacement for John Terry, and they seem ready to test the player's resolve by slapping a bid in.
