After completing the Premier League triumph with last Friday's 1-0 win at West Brom, Conte faces another challenge in the final week of the league season - balancing sentiment with planning for the Wembley showdown.
Reports in Italy suggest Chinese-backed Serie A club Inter are prepared to offer Conte £250,000 a week if he leaves Stamford Bridge one season into a three-year deal.
"Having said all that, the fundamental issue remains the work of the coach". The players will be a second season in and we saw that last season they couldn't sustain it for a second year. It was the key moment for us because every single player found in this system the best for them.
The double could follow later this month if Chelsea can beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final on May 27.
Michy Batshuayi could get his first Premier League start against Watford after scoring the title-clinching goal on his 18th substitute appearance.
Conte's focus has already moved on to the next target. I think that is why we wanted to bounce back this season.
"It's a huge club to work for, flawless circumstances and very ambitious people".
"It's more rumour than reality". Former players were among those who hailed Chelsea's accomplishment.
Chelsea's failure to qualify for European competition this season, coupled with a remarkably good injury record, means Conte has had to make very few adjustments to his starting XI during the campaign.
