Lopez admits he almost signed for Chelsea

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has described the sale of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United as a “great loss”.

“Matic knows very well what I think about him,” Conte, speaking at the Premier League Launch, told Sky Sports.

“The importance for me about this player, who is a really good player, a top player, very important for our team, but sometimes you must accept this crazy transfer market.

“And sometimes you must accept different decisions. But he is a great loss for us.”
