Conte works with Luiz in Chelsea training as Sarri arrival closer

Antonio Conte again took Chelsea training today as potential replacement Maurizio Sarri edged closer to his appointment.

Conte took pre-season training on Wednesday at the club's sun-drenched training facility at Cobham.

This was despite Napoli confirming earlier in the day that Chelsea have made progress over appointing their outgoing manager Sarri.

Conte looked to be doing his best to ignore all that talk as he scrutinised his players closely from under a blue baseball cap, reports the Daily Mail.

Many of Chelsea's star men are back in action, with those players not fortunate enough to feature at the World Cup already called to prepare for their club.

These include Marcos Alonso, Cesc Fabregas, Alvaro Morata, David Luiz, Pedro, Ross Barkley and Danny Drinkwater.
