  • Maurizio Sarri sends message to Michy Batshuayi over Chelsea future

Thibaut Courtois is desperate to return to Madrid but reports suggest Chelsea will not allow his proposed move to Real Madrid to go through.

Olivier Giroud is set for talks with Chelsea next week upon his arrival back to Cobham Training Centre, with his future still in the balance, Goal understands.

Despite the player's desire, it appears as though a £31 million bid from Los Blancos won't be enough to force Chelsea to acquiesce to the sale.

Chelsea is in the amid of lots of transfer speculation but is keeping the tab to keep their top players in the team to form a formidable team under the new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Mourinho left Chelsea for the second time midway through the 2015/16 campaign after winning his third Premier League title the season prior.

Chelsea have reportedly called off Thibaut Courtois's expected move to Real Madrid after the club failed to sign a replacement.

'Manchester City have been working together for two years.

City will present an even sterner test in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday, as well as an intriguing duel of philosophies between Sarri and his good friend Guardiola. I want to win, because it is very important to have a trophy immediately.

Asked for an update on the trio, Sarri replied: "Not at this moment, no, because I will see them on Saturday for the first time".

However, RMC says Sarri has spoken to Batshuayi and told him he wants the centre-forward to stay.

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