However, at a meet-and-greet session organised by T-Systems at Cafe Football yesterday, the German worldwide confirmed he is staying put at Bayern Munich.

Yet despite a confident start from Conte's men against a side that had already lost in pre-season to Arsenal and AC Milan, Bayern took just six minutes to take the lead.

Bayern meanwhile missed several gilt-edged opportunities of their own (James Rodriguez especially), and so the game finished 3-2 to the Champions of Germany, with Chelsea improving through the match.

The Blues did get on the scoresheet on the stroke of half-time through left wing-back Marcos Alonso, who hammered Victor Moses' low cross past Tom Starke from 12 yards.

M'Baye Niang, the most eye-catching player of the first half, caused all manner of problems down Bayern's flanks.

Bayern were dominant as Muller added to his tally in the 27th minute with a sweet strike from distance, finding the bottom right of Thibault Courtois' net as the Chelsea defenders backed off the German star.

I don't want to take anti-Russian sanctions off
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he wanted the North Korea sanctions added to the bill. Energy companies are also raising concerns about several provisions.

They then doubled their lead in the 24th minute with Rodríguez, a 17 million euro signing from Wolfsburg last month, once again the architect.

Antonio Conte had told Diego Costa, Chelsea's top scorer last season, that he was not in his plans for the future at Stamford Bridge; the Spaniard would be sold and a replacement brought in.

There are still 17 days to go until the start of the Premier League season and Conte is hopeful Morata will make a big impact in time. "A move could be a possibility but there is also a chance he could stay with us for the season".

Granted Chelsea's team wasn't exactly littered with their A-listers, with the likes of Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata not starting, the XI they sent out still contained first-teamers such as Gary Cahill, Willian and N'Golo Kante.

Chelsea's new £65million signing from Real Madrid even helped set up a goal for Batshuayi but could not prevent defeat after Thomas Muller's goals put Bayern out of sight.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte says that Alvaro Morata requires time to adapt to life with the Blues before producing his best performances.
