Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has claimed that the Blues cannot compete with the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United in a particular area.

The former Juventus manager believes the spending power the two Manchester clubs have is unmatchable, and has insisted his side cannot compete with their finances.

"These two clubs can become seriously dangerous for other teams in the world," Conte said, as quoted by the Daily Express.

"They are strong already and want to invest. For Alexis Sanchez, only one or two clubs can pay this salary.

"There are two teams in this league who are top, and they stay there. The others have to fight. It's not simple to think about finishing above them.

"We were never in this race for Sanchez because of the salary. But we're not worried. If you work, you can fight these big teams.

"Last year we won the league with a little miracle. But situations change. It's the truth. If you have money, you can have the best players. Otherwise, you find other ways."

Conte is rumoured to be unhappy with Chelsea's transfer policy of late, although they have been linked with Roma's Emerson Palmieri and Edin Dzeko in recent weeks.
