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.

The first-team players will be joined by select members of the loan squad, who will have decisions delayed on their moves with Chelsea wanting to take a closer look at them.

Chelsea have completed their first sessions of pre-season training, and amazingly, have done so under the watchful eye of Antonio Conte.

Despite his quality, Rugani struggled in his efforts to become a regular starter for the serial Serie A winners with Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli among those he has had to compete with for a starting spot.

Chelsea have now entered the fray for Jorginho, pushed forward by prospective new manager Maurizio Sarri.

And the report claims Chelsea are hoping to land a £35million deal to bring the Italy global to Stamford Bridge from Juve, who recently spent over £88m to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Italian has been widely tipped to leave Stamford Bridge this summer following a disappointing campaign which saw Chelsea finish fifth in the Premier League, although they did end the season with FA Cup glory.

The Brazilian has not played for the club since February after a fall-out with Conte.

But one factor that is blocking Chelsea from sacking Conte this summer is the fact that they would have to pay him £9 million as compensation with his release clause for one more year.
