Former gaffer of Juventus and the Italian senior national team, now manager of Chelsea Football Club, Antonio Conte, has named his squad that will fly to USA for the International Champions Cup. The Blues manager left out Christian Atsu who has over 40 caps for Ghana. The former Fc Porto winger joined the Blueside of London in the summer of 2013 having spent two seasons with the Portuguese club for 3.5million pounds.
Baba Rahman, his Ghanaian compatriot was however included in the squad for the trip. The left-back started with Atsu as Chelsea run Atus Ferlach riot in an earlier pre-season friendly. Question marks has been asked  about the 1.72m left-footed wingers future at the Stamford Bridge having already had five loan spells outside the club. His ommission from the squad has further heightened his move away from the club ahead of the new season. Others players likely to be shipped out include Piazon, Van Ginkel and Djilobodji who all missed the trip to the Americas.
Chelsea are billed to play with Liverpool on 27th July in Carlifornia. They will follow it up with another duel on 30h July with European Club Champions  Real Madrid in Michigan before playing with Milan on 3rd August at the US Bank Stadium in Minnesota.
