antonio conte claim that nemanja matic is a very lose for chelsea but the crazy market was too good to turn down.
The Blues boss sold the Serbian central midfielder to Manchester United for £40m earlier this summer.
It appears Conte wanted to keep Matic who was determined to link up with former boss Jose Mourinho again.
The Italian is now working hard on replacing Matic with Leicester’s Danny Drink-water and Ross Barkley of Everton linked.
But Conte seemed to admit that the money was too good to turn down.
He told Sky Sports: “Matic knows very well what I think about him.
“The importance for me about this player, who is a really good player, a top player, very important for our team.
“But sometimes you must accept this crazy transfer market.
