Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti believes new loan signing James Rodriguez will play a key role in the engine room of the German champions as they seek to export their domestic dominance to the rest of Europe.
However, with Antonio Conte being a serial victor and a ruthless tactician, the Italian will undoubtedly be far from impressed with what he saw in the opening stages of the game, although Marcos Alonso was able to pull one back just before the interval.
"I am happy with the squad and satisfied with the players we have".
James, who is with the Bayern Munich squad now in Singapore as part of the International Champions Cup (ICC) pre-season tour, feels that all he wants to do his play more and win trophies and is not anxious about his future. "I think that I would have more chance of playing in Milan than in Munich". Signing Sanches could see them surpass the €250m mark as they look to usurp Juventus in Italy.
"There is no way Vidal is leaving", he added. Renato is with us all the way through pre-season and then we will make a decision.
After his disappointing season in Munich, that speculation has returned, but the 2016 Golden Boy rightly has his heart set on a move to Serie A rather than the Premier League.
Bayern was defeated miserably by AC Milan for a sore of 4-0 in Shenzen last week but raced to 3-0 within 26 minutes of the start of the game against Chelsea.The first goal was struck by Rafinha in the sixth minute followed by two more goals by Muller on 12th and 26th minute. We are getting a very good price on the Italians to win and as a result I am sure that is the best betting option for this game.
