Meanwhile, the west London giants have begun pre-season training without the involvement of current boss Antonio Conte and this appears to give a clear indication that the 48-year-old should end his association with the club in the coming days.

The Chelsea players had only received word from Antonio Conte's staff this week that they would be returning for a full pre-season training camp starting on Monday.

The Italian has widely been expected to be given the boot this summer after the 2016/17 Premier League champions endured a torrid defence of their title, finishing fifth.

With Moses yet to return in full with the club, despite already getting back to London from the World Cup in Russian Federation, he was not available when The Blues commenced their pre-season drills on Saturday.

The new tier will offer the same quality and features as Netflix's Premium tier which, at $13.99, was the highest tier available. During the fourth quarter of 2017, Netflix posted their highest customer growth yet, adding 8.3 million new subscribers.

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

Ross Barkley, Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso and David Luiz were among those pictured alongside Conte on the club's official social media channels on Monday as he led a full session for players not involved at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Conte is also refusing to step down from his role in order to avoid giving up his own severance package should Chelsea sack him, with one year still remaining on his contract.

Chelsea's transfer business has been stalled, with the transfer window for Premier League clubs now being set at August 9, giving them four more weeks to bolster their squad.
