Conte presides over Chelsea training

  • Chelsea expect to appoint former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri as Conte's replacement

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.

Carlo Ancelotti replaced Sarri as Napoli coach following the end of the season, with a Chelsea move having been on the cards since Conte's relationship with the club's senior management turned sour in 2017-18.

However, Conte's apparent dismissal drew a response from Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas, who liked a tweet a Chelsea fan posted about Conte having been sacked although the Spanish 2010 World Cup victor subsequently claimed he had liked it by accident.

The cinema mogul disclosed that he had cut a deal with Manchester City for the midfielder over two weeks ago but Chelsea had offered a higher salary and the Italy global preferred to move to London rather than Manchester.

Higuain is keen to make the move from Juventus to Chelsea and become their main man, as the Chelsea board seem to lose faith with Alvaro Morata in front of goal.

Fueled by hot, dry winds, the newspaper wrote, the fire "ignited a tree, jumped the river and spread into nearby hills". Firefighters had begun inspecting the fire zone, which covers an area almost three times the size of San Francisco.

Sarri has been lined up to replace him for weeks and now de Laurentiis has revealed the deal is close.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is waiting for an improved offer from Chelsea and Sarri is not in London, as he waits for the go-ahead. Yet the deal has been held up in a squabble about compensation owed to the Italian club, meaning that Conte has weirdly started the pre-season training schedule at Chelsea as he waits to be fired.

In his first season in charge, Chelsea set a wins record with 30, finishing atop the Premier League table, comfortably ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in second place.

Sky Sports Italy are now reporting that Conte has now left his role at Stamford Bridge after two years at the club, although there has been no official announcement from Chelsea regarding the current managerial situation.

If you are starting to think United's transfer window has been underwhelming, take solace in the notion that Chelsea, with just a month until the new season, have made the grand total of zero signings so far.
