Andrea Pirlo looked to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture with Cesc Fabregas at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground on Friday morning.

The veteran midfielder paid a visit to the west London club’s training ground on Friday, possibly to catch up with his former manager Antonio Conte at Cobham.

Pirlo is widely regarded as one of Europe’s best playmaking midfielders in recent times.

And 29-year-old Fabregas looked thrilled to catch up with Pirlo at Chelsea’s training ground on Friday morning.

Fabregas shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “With the Master ⚽️”

Fabregas will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Spanish midfielder earned plenty of praise for his performance during Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Manchester City last weekend.

The west London side head into this weekend’s round of games three points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
