Speaking to Sky Sports, Conte identified the "crazy transfer market" as the main reason for Chelsea's decision to sell Matic - who had two years left to run on his contract this summer and declined to commit to an extension - while admitting that his squad has lost a "top player".

Nemanja Matic left Chelsea for Manchester United last month.

Antonio Conte admitted on Wednesday that the departure of Matic was a "great loss" to Chelsea, who will also begin their Premier League title defence without £40 million signing Bakayoko due to a knee injury picked up in the final weeks of last season at Monaco. Was it his dream to go and play for Manchester United?

"There are a lot of variables that aren't easy but from the outside, it does seem unusual to let that player go to a direct rival - and he will improve them".

Nemanja Matic is clearly an upgrade for Manchester United in an area that was a problem for them, especially with Michael Carrick getting older.

It is that failure of our justice system to adequately respond to crisis that is usually a recipe for greater conflict. The commission is headed by Justice Biobele Georgewill of the Port Harcourt division of the Court of Appeal.

"On Sunday, we have a very important game at Old Trafford in front of all our supporters".

"It's very important for us that our strikers score goals", the midfielder told MUTV. It is just how he uses that talent in the team.

Champions Chelsea could give a debut to Spain striker Alvaro Morata at home to Burnley, while last season's runners-up Tottenham Hotspur, who have yet to sign any players in the transfer window, visit promoted Newcastle United on Sunday. I have seen him work on the field and in the gym. He's got great movement and he's a good finisher, so he now needs to adapt to the Premier League.

"You saw that with Chelsea last year - him and Kante were magnificent last year and that allowed Hazard, Fabregas, whoever else was playing that bit of freedom, and I'm hoping he'll do that for United - a bit of freedom for Pogba, Martial, Lingard, Mkhitaryan - these players really need to step up this year". It's a very tough league and he'll have to stand up to that. We played against a very good side.

"I don't think the club wanted to let Diego Costa go necessarily, because you can't get Diego Costas on every street corner". We want to be competitive and we want to fight for the title again. I don't want to play football for 15 years and not have one trophy or one medal.
