The Telegraph reports that the Russian businessman is prepared to bankroll a number of new signings in the New Year as the Blues look to retain the EPL trophy.
The source states that Leonardo Bonucci would command a world-record fee for a defender, expected to be in the region of £50 million, should he move to Stamford Bridge. According to the Sun, The Bianconeri are keen on a big cash deal plus Cesc Fabregas, but Conte believes he can save transfer funds by sending Hazard to Turin instead of the midfielder.
The Sun also states that Chelsea must pay £50 million to AC Milan if they are to land central defender Alessio Romagnoli.
The source stresses that Chelsea previously targeted Romagnoli but had several bids turned down ahead of Conte’s arrival at Stamford Bridge, and Milan have now slapped a £50m price tag on the Italian.
