Chelsea handed massive £250m transfer budget as Conte prepares for next season

Conte is planning a move for Bonucci, Lukaku and Bakayoko.

a massive transfer budget in the range of £250m ($256m) to bolster their squad next season after an initial disagreement with the manager regarding the budget allotted in the transfer window. The Blues won the Premier League title on a canter last season but Conte knows that they can't be complacent this time around as clubs around them are spending strongly.

that Conte had clashed with Marina Granovskaia, owner Roman Abramovich's chief negotiator, over the fees allotted to him and was ready to leave the club after only his first season should his demands not be met. With the club conceding his demands, the Italian is set to make a splash for Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus as his priority signing for the summer, despite the player turning 30 this year.
