Chelsea manager Antonio Conte could soon announce first summer signing for his team


Former Chelsea goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini could be Antonio Conte's first summer signing as he is expected to join the Italian's coaching staff.

Reliable Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed that club owner Roman Abramovich is ready to re-sign the 42-year-old who would be in close contact with Conte until he settles down at Stamford Bridge.

In March, Cudicini was full of praise for his former club after they announced the appointment of Conte.

"Conte is a coach with a winning mentality, who demands a lot from his players," he said.

"He is a very passionate manager, very detailed in his preparation of his team.

"He is mechanical in the way he makes sure he knows everything about his team behind the scenes, and the opponents. He is Italian so he is very passionate about what he does. He is driven for success, leaving nothing to chance.

"He has been a fantastically successful manager for Juventus for three or four years, winning the league three or four times in a row."
