Carlo Ancelotti takes Napoli training with Maurizio Sarri absent

Napoli stalled the deal, perhaps anticipating the entry of Chelsea into the bidding, with the London club having their own negotiating difficulties with Aurelio De Laurentiis when trying to secure Maurizio Sarri for the Stamford Bridge hot-seat.

Conte was expected to be fired at the end of last term, in which the Blues surrendered their Premier League title with a limp fifth-place finish, although they did win the FA Cup.

Yet disputes regarding compensation and the sacking of current Blues boss Antonio Conte is slowing that managerial change down.

Even with Conte set to leave, it seemed as if Willian would follow, regardless of who took over the reigns at Chelsea, as Man United and Barcelona both expressed interest in his services.

Ancelotti worked alongside Luiz during his stint in charge of Chelsea and it's believed by the Mirror that the Italian tactician will offer the 31-year-old an escape route away from the Premier League.

However, Conte has already arrived at Chelsea in order for the club's pre-season campaign with their first game on July 23 in Australia.

Conte is still now in charge, but Maurizio Sarri is expecting to be cleared to replace him as manager of Chelsea at the start of next week.

At the end of last season it seemed certain that Conte and Chelsea would part ways, but there he was, still the coach of the Stamford Bridge side, to the disbelief of numerous players.
