Roma team manager Morgan De Sanctis says Davide Zappacosta will spend the season at the Olimpico, barring ‘exceptional’ circumstances.

Zappacosta joined Roma from Chelsea on Wednesday evening, but their loan for the right-back is for six months with an option to extend until the end of the season.

“Zappacosta’s on loan for six months, with an automatic renewal until June 2020 if exceptional conditions with relation to Chelsea’s transfer ban don’t arrive,” clarified De Sanctis at a Press conference.

Chelsea continue Conte battle

Inter Coach Antonio Conte is still in a legal battle with Chelsea over his £9m severance package, with reports of another appeal.

The Italian tactician was sacked last summer to make way for Maurizio Sarri and the club claimed it was not due to pay any compensation.

That was because his text to striker Diego Costa confirming he was not part of the plans was considered to be damaging to the club and worthy of dismissal.

Conte contested that and won in May, with a Premier League tribunal ordering them to pay Conte £9m.
