It's between me and him.
As the week unfolded, such details seemed to matter little as it was interpreted as an attack on Conte.
The United boss infamously labeled Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger "a voyeur" when he was Chelsea manager and has exchanged a series of barbs with former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss Rafael Benitez - and the Spaniard's wife.
Carroll, then, could be brought in over his head, but Hammers boss David Moyes has claimed to be in the dark regarding the Chelsea rumours and the Blues continue to be linked with several other striking alternatives.
Now, Jose, that's just not cricket.
"For sure, his future will be in a great club".

Chelsea hero Dennis Wise believe his former club have finished their business for January after signing Ross Barkley from Everton. In mitigation, the defender had been subjected to some abhorrent and inexcusable racist abuse from the Italian club's supporters in the 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge a fortnight earlier which might well explain his nervous display at the Stadio Olimpico.
Last summer, Conte made pointed comments about United's spending and then spoke of the need to avoid a "Mourinho season", the sort of slump that had happened after Chelsea's previous title success.
Norwich are on the verge of selling Alex Pritchard to Huddersfield, and won't be keen to part with another starlet this month.
