Cahill also admitted he expected Chelsea to make further signings this summer, with the gulf in squad size evident during Sunday's Community Shield defeat to Arsenal. Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League last year.

"Matic knows very well what I think about him", said Conte.

Matic followed Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku as part of the United manager's summer reinforcement drive, with the defensive midfielder arriving fresh from winning the title with Antonio Conte's Chelsea.

According to the Telegraph, PSG have invigorated United-who have been heavily linked to Aurier with Jose Mourinho looking for a natural full-back to take over from Antonio Valencia- to bid for the 24-year-old and are awaiting the first offer for the defender.

That being said, when asked about Diego Costa, who he of course exiled from the squad, Conte remained firm, and claimed the player would not be allowed back into the side and will be sold this summer.

'And sometimes you must accept different decisions.

Matic was speaking after making his competitive United debut, playing the entirety of Tuesday's 2-1 UEFA Super Cup loss to Real Madrid despite only having had 45 pre-season minutes in red under his belt.

The silver lining for Conte this transfer window appears to be beating Manchester United to the signing of Morata.

"I think I was very clear in the past and I think now it's not important to repeat". "If Nathaniel Chalobah or Ruben Loftus-Cheek were still there they could get rid of Matic and play a younger kid".

Chelsea have added Tiémoué Bakayoko to their midfield ranks to provide cover for Matic's departure.

"Matic has intelligence and experience of the Premier League".
