Conte, 48, still has a year remaining on his Chelsea contract but has looked set to exit Stamford Bridge this summer for some time now, per Jason Burt in the Telegraph. Also because they have to play two games.

Germany global Rüdiger played two years alongside Mohamed Salah during their time at AS Roma, before they both headed to the Premier League. If you put this on me I'm in trouble.

He added: "I think they want to finish this season in the best possible way".

Conte's side face a battle to qualify for next term's Champions League, with a five-point gap to make up on the top four going into Sunday's home game against third-place Liverpool.

"In the League, usually the team who deserves to win it wins it. Luck is important in every competition, but when you play 38 games you show you are the best".

The winger then made a £34m (fee reported by the BBC) return to the Premier League, signing for Liverpool who reached the Champions League final on Wednesday, defeating Roma 7-6 on aggregate despite losing 4-2 on the night.

"I don't know if this is the right moment to play against them", Conte said at a press conference. You can see that he's always present, in a positive or negative situation, so I have great respect for him.

Salah has thrived at Liverpool and could come back to haunt his former club when the Reds travel to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday - MATCH PREVIEW.

The 59-year-old Italian is tempted to take over the Chelsea job next season to compete in one of the most challenging leagues in the world. We have to get three points. For sure we want to give satisfaction to our fans.
