Fabregas, Morata report for Chelsea FC pre-season training

The Blues' eggheads have been in talks with the former Napoli boss after holding numerous meetings.

Antonio Conte's brother has dropped a huge hint on Instagram that the Italian is set to continue as Chelsea manager.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding, the manager's position, squad members appeared in top spirit as they commenced preparations ahead of the new campaign.

Alvaro Morata, Pedro, Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso, Davide Zappacosta, Emerson Palmieri, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater and Ross Barkley will also return to training on that day after the break.

And the club's eggheads are looking forward to sort out the appointment of Sarri as soon as possible to enhance Chelsea's preparation ahead of the new campaign.

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.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is reportedly playing hard-ball as Chelsea look to finally bring in Maurizio Sarri as their new manager.

The 59-year-old Italian was tipped to take over from his compatriot at Stamford Bridge after Chelsea failed to qualify for UEFA Champions League football after finishing fifth.

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.
