I'm sure most of the time they're both on the same page but yes occasionally they might not agree about what's best...can't really see Conte walking over a 30 year Inter reject though...

Inter "reject". Last time I checked he was an integral part of the Inter team. But thats fine, dont let facts distort your opinion.

Was luiz a PSG "reject" too?

psg want 30m € for matuidi, I don't know what is our board waiting

because in Conte's system he has 2 central midfielders, so whoever we buy either has to be better than Kante, Cesc or Bakayoko or must be a player happy to sit on the bench and not be a first choice.

that leaves either youngsters, which we have plenty of but keep loaning out or selling, or someone a little older who is not a first choice for their club.

IMO we should have tried harder to keep Chalobah.

Every player we're linked with seems to be a dead end. 

In the morning rumours start surfacing about being linked with such and such player and within the next 12 hours the players manager/chairman/agent comes out saying the players is invaluable/unavailable.

I understand that this is sometimes used as a ploy to raise any potential offer but it so bloody tedious!!!

clubs now know that this far in to the market clubs start getting desperate, they know who our targets were and did not get them and now we are going for our second choices which leave the selling clubs in a position to ask for stupid money.

Conte will have given the board a list of players at the end of last season and they should have gone after them straight away and quietly.

What's silly is we will pay 30 mil each for a couple of players we don't want rather than buying the bucket and using that money to buy someone like Sandro. 

As for maduidi he always looks a menace when we play psg I think at his age he would be happy to play a Ramires type role, rotation and for games the manager feels his style suits, or as a sub to bring in energy, at 30 a 2 year contract with good wages at a top club with a role to play is a perfect scenario for him, offer him a good wage and he will accept. 

Psg need to sell players after buying naymar, we should hit them up for a couple of their players and a CM of kante, bakayoko, cesc and Matuidi is strong.

Imagine if the board went out and offered 60m for Sandro back in May/June. We wouldn't even be having this conversation. 

Prior to July, the highest fee was 40m+ for B Silva. Unrealistic but it was still justifiable, the board however thinks that everything can be negotiated, lo and behold the prices skyrocketed since then and now every top player is worth 60m+
