Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has confirmed that midfielder Nemanja Matic will not leave the club this summer.
The Serbian has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus who need to replace Paul Pogba who left the club to join Manchester United.
But the Italian was again full of praise for the 28-year-old who will be a key player in his squad this season.
"Nemanja is an important player for me, and he knows this," Conte told reporters on Friday.
"There isn't a problem with him - Nemanja was a Chelsea player and is a Chelsea player.
"I speak a lot with my players, all my players.
"Usually when you arrive at a new club it's important to get to know the players, all the aspects.
"It's important to speak with all the players, to understand, to listen, why the last season was so bad.
"Because for the coach, for the first time arriving it's important to go inside, into the head of the players to understand and solve the situation."
