Sarri ready for showdown talks with Courtois

Justin GreeneAug 07, 2018

His agent is quoted as saying the 26-year-old wants to move to Real Madrid, with new Blues boss Sarri set to hold face-to-face talks with the shot-stopper.

And it is understood the Blues do not know when the 26-year-old Belgium global will return.

With Real Madrid determined to sign Thibaut Courtois before the close of the English transfer window, Chelsea are now looking to Kepa Arrizabalaga to replace the Belgian.

Since his time as Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho has been an admirer of Brazil worldwide Willian, and he feels he should sign him for the Red Devils this summer.

The Belgium global has had an extended period away after finishing third with his nation at the World Cup. I never said that I want to leave the club.

"I always made it clear that what I wanted was to stay in the club", Willian said after the Community Shield loss to Manchester City yesterday.

Chelsea forward Willian has joked that he hopes Maurizio Sarri "is not the same as Antonio Conte", having found it "difficult" to play for the recently-departed manager.

And Willian, who has been with Chelsea since 2013, has now committed his future to the west London club.

Well, we know where he stands now.

It has left Chelsea's options limited and not obvious if they are to sell Courtois to Real Madrid.

"I want them to stay, because we have top players with the confidence", Luiz said.

"This is a new era, with a new manager and I've had a very good conversation with him, so I hope we can enjoy a lot of victories". "I'm joking. I think Conte was, for me particularly, a manager that was hard to work with".

Willian's compatriot and team-mate David Luiz has urged Belgian duo Courtois and Hazard to also stay put after starring for their country at the World Cup.
