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.

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.

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

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.

Antonio Conte returned to Chelsea's Cobham training ground on Saturday as the Blues began their preseason preparations with no resolution in sight to the uncertainty surrounding the club's head coaching situation, sources have told ESPN FC.

In the meantime, he is still Chelsea's manager and has to fulfil the terms of that contract, so has prepared a pre-season programme for his players, and has returned to work in the latest twist in the long running saga.

"With the World Cup still in full flow, the numbers are diminished, but for those players who didn't feature in Russian Federation there were plenty of smiles on show as they caught up after a few weeks' break".
