Fabregas, Morata report for Chelsea FC pre-season training

Fabregas, Morata report for Chelsea FC pre-season training

So with Chelsea having arranged pre-season preparations to start today, not many would have been expecting Antonio Conte to still be in charge.

Ross Barkley, Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso and David Luiz were among those pictured alongside Conte on the club's official social media channels on Monday as he led a full session for players not involved at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Chelsea are reportedly seeking to lure midfielder Jorginho from Napoli during their ongoing negotiations for manager Maurizio Sarri.

If Willian does come to Manchester, the club will definitely be boosted with the experience he has in the Premier League. The 29-year-old further added that he is only focussed on playing for Brazil.

While Conte took charge, Moses was not among the lot, as Chelsea's non-World Cup 2018 players returned to their Cobham facilities on Saturday morning for their first pre-season training session and standard procedure medical checks.

Conte is refusing to walk away from his job unless Chelsea agree to pay up the final year of his deal - believed to be worth in the region of £9 million - in full and compensate his backroom staff.

Numbers were diminished due to several players' involvement in Russian Federation, but those who didn't feature in Russian Federation were put through their paces with fitness and stretching exercises.

Conte is also holding out for his £9m and intends to work his previous year of his contract unless he gets it, having not had any concrete offers from other clubs and after turning down Italy's interest in re-appointing him.

Chelsea's transfer business has been stalled, with the transfer window for Premier League clubs now being set at August 9, giving them four more weeks to bolster their squad.
