  • Chelsea transfer news Willian

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has admitted he is not happy after Willian failed to return to training on time after the World Cup.

Since the Italy worldwide moved to Stamford Bridge, City have been linked to a succession of high-end alternatives from Juventus' Miralem Pjanic to Real Madrid's Mateo Kovacic and Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti.

Chelsea had been willing to cash in on Courtois on the proviso they could sign a replacement but, after seeing Alisson Becker join Liverpool, have so far been unable to secure a new No1.

Christophe Henrotay, the agent of Chelsea goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has told the club to let his client move to Real Madrid.

They will then start playing for real on August 12, with the Premier League regular season opener at home against West Ham United. Whereas Firmino is fain to drop deep and leave space for Mane and Salah, Sturridge spends far longer facing the opposition goal.

"With the players we've got and ability that we've got, we just want to keep on working hard together to make the club great and keep doing well". The table of the last Premier League told me City had 100 points, and Chelsea had 70 points. There is not a Willian problem.

He has also looked impressive for the club this pre-season and is likely to be an important part of the team under Sarri for at least the first couple of games of the season.

Despite some encouraging moments towards the end of the first half, Chelsea performed in disjointed fashion at Wembley and were fortunate not to concede more goals than one in each half to Sergio Aguero. Which is good - he is a Manchester City fan, [so are] his family. The Premier League is the best league in the world'. "We never know, but I have been always clear about my wish of staying here". But I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper'. We talked only about 'Can I arrive on Monday instead of Sunday?'

Cesc Fabregas may miss out due to a minor knee problem.
