Chelsea manager Antonio Conte: Yes, I tried to sign this player but then this happened


Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed that he wanted to sign Kyle Walker during this summer's transfer window.

Unfortunately for the Blues, the Englishman decided to join rivals Manchester City.

He became one of the many signings of manager Pep Guardiola who is building a title-winning squad for next season.

"Honestly, I think now every single player is expensive," Conte told reporters.

"If you want [Kyle] Walker, you know that Walker is expensive. We tried to buy Walker.

"For you to even enquire about one player, he is expensive.

"You go to buy a right-back, a left-back or a central defender and he is expensive.

"It is very difficult in the transfer market for the teams that need to improve their squads."
