Host Pete Graves was joined in the studio by Sky Sports News reporter Michael Bridge to discuss the big deals that could happen this summer.

Willian, who was voted the club's players' player of the season, was left out of the starting line-up for the 1-0 FA Cup final win over United - the fourth time he has been on the bench in the last five games.

The 29-year-old subsequently hinted at a rift between himself and Conte by editing the Italian out of a picture of their trophy celebrations on Instagram on Sunday.

Conte's future as Chelsea manager remains in doubt, despite lifting a second trophy in as many seasons, after failing to secure Champions League football for next campaign following a fifth-place finish.

Conte reiterated his commitment after his side's victory at Wembley, but has repeatedly deferred questions over his future towards the club.
