Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes the FA Cup winners need to spend heavily if they are to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

Even after Chelsea won the FA Cup against Manchester United, Willian couldn't resist a dig at Conte with this post after the game, covering his manager's image with three trophy emojis.

There has always been speculation linking Courtois with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, while Chelsea manager Antonio Conte could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge despite the FA Cup triumph.

"I think if we want to aim for the top, we should do the same - obviously within the limits of what's possible as well".

Chelsea may need to sell forward Eden Hazard "to help fund other transfers", says ex-assistant boss Steve Clarke.

On his day, Chelsea midfielder Willian is one of his club's most unsafe players alongside Eden Hazard, providing the Blues with an attacking dynamic that could rival numerous largest clubs in Europe.

'Of course we will see if we can bring in some new players.

But that could not disguise the fact that the Londoners, champions in the previous season, finished a massive 30 points behind title-winners Manchester City.

The Belgium worldwide is fully focused on the upcoming World Cup Finals but he has only a year left on his current contract and a decision over his future has to be taken this summer. "I'm not saying we've had a magnificent season by any stretch".

After the match Conte, who is expected to leave Chelsea this summer, reiterated that his future is in the club's hands while mounting a staunch defence of his impressive winning record as a coach.

The Blues are in for what could be a rough summer, with Antonio Conte's future also up in the air.

The West London club missed out on a Champions League spot and will play in the Europa League next season.

"All I can say is it's been a great finish", said Cahill. "I can not change my personality, my idea of football".

A £100million fee and wages of £300,000-a-week are mooted for Hazard, who has two years left on his Chelsea contract.

"If [Manchester] City keep playing like this, it is going to be hard, but you never know in football".

"I never read papers but you get questions by journalists after games and before games and eventually it turns around the group". It's right that the club demands a lot.

He added: "I wanted to remember the moment, without being too emotional about it".

"For sure we'll make the best decision".

"I understand that the club can make a decision - positive or negative".
