Thibaut Courtois Goes AWOL In Order To Force Real Madrid Move

Courtois could leave Chelsea if he is not motivated, says Sarri

Sarri ready for showdown talks with Courtois

The Portuguese manager was said to have wanted to rejoin with his former player as he wished to strengthen United's right-wing.

Kepa's future is a situation that could get messy, especially with the English transfer window closing on Thursday, and the stopper will be forced to make a decision with the Basque club expecting him to be present at training on Tuesday morning.

Chelsea meet Lyon on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge in their final pre-season warm up match before the start of the Premier League season where they face Huddersfield away in their opening match on Saturday.

But Willian has now disappointed these two clubs as he stated clearly after Chelsea's defeat against Manchester City in the Community Shield that he has never talked about leaving the London based club.

Chelsea's eagerness to halt Real Madrid's efforts to sign Hazard may lead to him being offered the chance to become club Blues captain, yet persuading Courtois and Willian to stay will be a tough task.

Hinting he would be willing to sell Courtois if he confirms he wants to leave, Sarri said: "I have no reaction on the agent".

The Belgian could yet sign a contract extension, although it is unlikely Hazard will sign any new deal in the near future.

Luiz, 31, is delighted that Willian is set to stay. Chelsea are expected to bid for Butland and is rated as the most likely goalkeeper arrival this week, although he is not the only name on the club's radar.

President Kiir also said the remaining outstanding issues will be finalized with his rivals as soon as he arrives in Khartoum. A similar arrangement fell apart in July 2016 when fighting erupted in the capital, Juba, and Machar fled the country.

The Italian boss has been tasked with steering Chelsea FC back into the top four at the very least after they finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup under Conte last term.

"Since the beginning, he told me he loved Chelsea", he said. I've watched clips of his Napoli team to see the way they played.

"I've always made it very clear that I've always been very happy playing for Chelsea".

Let us know in the comments.

Luiz himself was sidelined by injury and a fallout with Conte for most of last season.

However, it's not just Sarri who wants him to remain.

"I hope we can understand it quickly and can fight for all the titles", Luiz added.

"We're looking forward to it".
