Conte returns for Chelsea preseason training as club continues to chase Sarri

While Moses was absent, Alvaro Morata, Ross Barkley, Pedro, Marcos Alonso and Danny Drinkwater were all present for the training session.

Maurizio Sarri was said to have been lined up to take over at Stamford Bridge and it appeared to be a matter of time before a deal was confirmed when Napoli sacked him in May for taking too long to decide on his future.

Chelsea have been in talks with the former Napoli boss after and have held numerous meetings.

Former Arsenal midfielder Fabregas looking smart after holidaying at Mykonos, took to his official Instagram account to show fans he was physically fit and ready for the pre-seasonal tour.

Moses will, however, hope to be part of the squad when Chelsea kick-start their pre-season with a friendly against Perth Glory on July 23 before entering the International Champions Cup at the end of the month.

Tropical Storm Chris to bring showers
Sunday, the remnants of Beryl were located near latitude 15.8 North, longitude 62.4 West, N.H.C. said. Tropical storm force winds were extending outward up to 70 miles, the center said.

And Sarri's presence in London could yet give Chelsea the edge in the race.

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.

The Italian is widely expected to be replaced by former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri but the Premier League winning coach as Conte wore a tired look at the club's Cobham training base.

Chelsea are also yet to break their summer transfer market duck, although work on targets such as Russia's Aleksandr Golovin, Daniele Rugani and Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson is ongoing.
