Well, Conte didn't even meet the squad before we signed Michy, so I highly doubt he insisted to buy him. He spoke to Kanté on phone and he signed Alonso bc Marcos was a fit to his system.

He may not have met the squad but that doesn't mean he didn't his homework on the squad and/or speak with the club about transfers. And considering how late we got Alonso last summer, I doubt he was high on Conte's main targets list. Likely to have only bought him because we couldn't get others.

No solid proof of course, but I've read from several places that Michy was scouted and pushed to be signed by Emenalo.

And could have been approved by Conte himself.

LOOOOOL 

LMAO This just keeps getting better:   This is one of the best things that has ever happened on social media      

Over at Olympique Marseille during an interview he once confessed he sometimes couldn't sleep the night before game-day and then he'd often watch Spongebob episodes to calm his nerves. Fans that saw t

Still it was Conte's decision to offload Kenedy and Baba Rahman and sign a new player. Of course it was impossible to buy everyone from his wishlist(Romagnoli) especially without Champions Leauge, but we signed Alonso after Conte worked with the squad for 8 weeks.

We bought Michy for around 5m less, than what the entire Marseille club sold for at the same time (an American owner bought them not long ago for 45m euros.) (They were desperate to move Michy on, as he was eating up the wage bill undeservingly. Doing so essentially allowed them to be bought, due to complicated matters.)

Let me use my favourite word to use on this forum: Lunacy.

Merry new season btw, it's Spring here :ph34r:

You cant help but feel for the lad. He seemed like a great fit for us when he came and I was looking foreward to seeing him join up with Diego. But it must kill him not to have the trust of the manager. Tho Conte does continue to say hes happy with him. If Contes man management skills were as good as we think they are then he needs to get the lad bouncing again.

I dunno what the answer is but IF it comes down to us passing him on lets hope we dont lose out on him and bow and say thanks to wankers like PSG who want him just to sit and warm their bench instead of ours!

PSG should target Michy Batshuayi loan move from Chelsea as a priority

I wonder what makes them think this lol

Did Chelsea boss Antonio Conte drop a hint that he doesn't trust Michy Batshuayi yet?

The Belgian striker has not made a Premier League start for the Blues since signing in the summer

During conte pre-Hull City press conference i noticed that as well, when he spoke about his options in the 3 front positions he said: 

"At the moment for me to make a decision is not easy, it is not simple. At the moment I have four or five players that are very strong in that position.

I have Pedro, Willian, Hazard, Costa and I also have Ruben. It is not easy because they are in good form and they give me different options." he didn't mention michy, maybe it's just an accident and not intentionally but as they said in the article it's not a good sign for michy that conte forgot about him.

Michy Batshuayi has had a hand in six goals in three starts for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge (four goals, two assists)

I felt sorry for the chap today. He was very close to having 3 goals for himself. The difference being the luck that you get when your confidence is high. He also eeds to start taking earlier shots IMHO.

I've said it before and will say it again. His hold-up play is very good, and reminds me of how it was when we had Drogba up front. Hope he can continue to work on it. Diego does it well, but having another striker like Michy who can setup chances up front is a great boon for the team

he looked like mentally weak, when something goes wrong he disappointed straight away, you saw how he kicked the ball at the end of the half, and this is killing him, i didn't tough he had a good game, he doesn't run as he needs too, yes i know he is frustrated but still when you have a chance prove yourself, if you ask me he need to work with a psychologist it will do magic with him.

U must be new here. All our bad signings are because of Emanuel and the good ones are thanks to the manager

conte believes he can become a good striker..and he will..we must be patient,

Feel bad for this lad. He deserves more minutes. Don't understand what Conte has against him.

But Michy had worse...after all, he did play under the real deal, El Loco. Biggest motherfucker in football manager world but love him. If it wasn't Conte, I wanted Bielsa even though he wouldn't last for more than 2 weeks at this club.
