Conte says he did consider quitting Chelsea this summer

Diego Costa

They have also signed former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a free transfer but Conte has hinted that a fifth new face is around the corner.

Chelsea playmaker Pedro will leave the club's pre-season tour and return to England after suffering a concussion during their 3-0 win over Premier League rivals Arsenal in China on Saturday. He's always been a striker with a little bit of everything.

"When you are the main striker for Chelsea you need to fight for all the competitions and if you are going to fight for all competitions you need your strikers to score lots of goals".

Costa was granted extra time off by the Blues and has missed the start of pre-season training after the 28-year-old revealed in June that he was not part of Conte's plans. He has great potential, he can improve a lot.

"We conducted a very extensive search of other areas where people are living and fortunately there was no serious problem". Bricks and other debris coated streets, and tourists were sleeping outdoors to stay safe during the numerous aftershocks.

The 29-year-old Spain global left the pitch midway through the first half of the 3-0 win over the Gunners at Beijing's Bird's Nest Stadium after a heavy collision with goalkeeper David Ospina.

The centre-back skippered the side for much of last season, with John Terry restricted largely to a back-up role, and he has now been given the armband on a full-time basis. That will not put me down after what happened last season and how I stood up to it. "Now it's right to start to work together and it's very important to know that there's a lot of work to do". So, we had to keep working and wait for our chance. "In January, the situation was very clear for the club, the player, for Costa, for his agent, that when we arrived in June then it would be finished". "In that period he was very young but now, with experience at Juventus and Real Madrid, he is ready to come to Chelsea and to play for us. More from necessity, not because I wanted to change".

He told the Italian media: 'I'm proud to wear this shirt, I've bought into an important project here and I'm happy to be here. Conte said after the win: "Pedro went to the hospital and for sure he should be OK but I think he had concussion".
