Di Matteo says more signings on way at Chelsea

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo expects their signing spree to continue after he penned a new two-year deal yesterday.

With the signings of creative players such as Eden Hazard and Marko Marin already confirmed, and the possibility of more additions to come, Di Matteo's immediate focus is on closing the gap on last season's top two.

"I had a wonderful break with my family, it was very enjoyable but now the work starts," he admitted on Chelsea TV.

"I have to start planning for pre-season. We've lost a few players who are out of contract and we've already signed a couple of players, so there will be a slight change, but there won't be a complete overhaul of the squad.

"I won't discuss now what we will do in the market, all of that takes place behind the scenes, but we will try to make the right signings for the functionality of the squad.

How much money did they make? MAn they're signing everybody, lol. Not a 'complete overhaul' hmm. Shouldn't be, with how this squad played for him but a few changes should be there, so he's right.

Yeah, we don't need a complete overhaul. We're okay in defensive areas expect at right back where Bosingwa needs to be replaced. It's upfront and in midfield that new faces need to be introduced.

Can't wait for next season to start!

Porto are trying to fool like what they did to bosingwa back than...
- There are known to do this to teams , and We might case a cheaper and younger player like Jovetic
- We could also get Hulk and I heard Di matteo wants Cavani or Falcao maybe too ,

- Hes mainly focusing on the defensive side of chelsea because you know how great how tactics are and unbeatable in big games
