The Chelsea players have been back in pre-season this week before they head off on the tour of China and Singapore on Tuesday.
The preparations for the defence of their Premier League title are well under way, despite the disruptions and uncertainty of a few of the players.
Diego Costa is currently not with the squad, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set to go to Crystal Palace on loan for the season.
The Blues’ squad seems thin on the ground at the moment, with the club still trying to bring in more players to bolster the numbers.
Ten players have already been loaned out by the club, but others have remained and are fighting for a spot in the first team squad next season.
But who is getting the chance to impress manager Antonio Conte at the moment?
Marco van Ginkel
Van Ginkel has had his fair share of loans during his time at Chelsea, with AC Milan, Stoke City, and PSV all having him for a short period of time.
The Dutch international signed a three-year deal with the Blues last December before heading out to the Netherlands for his latest loan spell with PSV.
The 24-year-old is back in Cobham training with Chelsea, however his future is still up in the air and the likelihood is another loan spell.
However, if Conte can’t get the transfer business that he wants this summer, Van Ginkel could be a useful asset.
If any returning loan player is likely to get their shot in the first team squad this season, then it is probably going to be Christensen.
The Danish defender has been at Borussia Monchengladbach for two seasons and has impressed many in the Bundesliga with his performances.
At 21 the international is certainly a great prospect, and should be kept around by Conte. With Antonio Rudiger having signed, the chances might be slightly limited. However, Kurt Zouma could be on his way out on loan which means a likely spot as back-up.
Musonda is another who should stick around next season after already being given a shirt number by the club for the upcoming campaign.
The 20-year-old Belgian will take the number 17, the old number of Eden Hazard, as he looks to make an impression at the club.
The winger had a loan spell at Real Betis, but with Hazard injured for the opening month of the campaign, Musonda might get a chance to impress down the wing under Conte.
Brazilian Piazon had an impressive time at Fulham last season in the Championship, having been on several loans beforehand.
Spells at Malaga, Vitesse, Frankfurt and Reading mean that the 23-year-old has been one of the more shipped out players at Chelsea.
However, Piazon is getting his pre-season going at Cobham, looking to make an impression, however the chances of the forward breaking into the squad for next season are unlikely.
Chelsea are going through a little bit of a striker crisis at the moment, with Costa not at pre-season and the Blues struggling to sign a replacement should he leave.
Is Remy the answer? Probably not, but at the moment the 30-year-old is back training with the Blues to get himself back to full fitness.
Remy has had a tough time with injuries of late, with his loan spell at Crystal Palace being a frustrated one as he spent most his time on the injury table.
With only one year left on his contract, it is likely that he will be shipped out again and Blues fans may not see him in a Chelsea kit again.
The little known defender has been frequently loaned out by the Blues and has two years left to run on his contract.
The 23-year-old Nigerian international has had spells at ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough, Kasımpaşa and Alanyaspor, but is back with the Blues and trying to make an impression.
Omeruo can as both a centre-back and a right-back, but with the Blues looking to bolster their squad with signings, the chances may be slim for the Nigerian to remain at Chelsea.
