Which means he has just this summer left with the Killer Lady and next either he will extend his contract of will have to leave the camp. So, it seems, he would be a perfect choice of Conte and probably be an easy option to buy but unfortunately coming at the end of the transfer window, he has got company which are seems to be the opponents.
