Thibaut Courtois tells Chelsea to sell him this summer

04 August 2018

The Brazilian worldwide was supposed to arrive alongside his teammates for the Blues" camp on July 27th, but his absence led manager Maurizio Sarri to admit he was "not happy' with Willian and will seek urgent talks with him this week.

Former Belgium assistant coach Graeme Jones expects Thibaut Courtois to leave Chelsea this month.

Courtois, who has a year remaining on his Chelsea contract, has a three-year-old daughter and one-year-old son from a previous relationship.

And to really kill the rumours linking the wantaway winger to United and Barcelona, Sarri had an assured response when asked if he was confident that the right winger would stay at the club.

However Courtois' contract situation could change the club's stance as they don't want to lose the goalkeeper for nothing next June.

"It depends on the club". I'm very happy living in London'. "I think so", said Sarri.

Jordan Pickford would be a goalkeeper perfectly suited to Maurizio Sarri's style of play at Chelsea FC, according to Adam Bate. "I don't know about the future".

"I spoke yesterday (Thursday) with him about his lateness, not about his future".

This comes as a great sigh of relief for Chelsea given the likes of Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have been linked away from the club, with Real Madrid credited with a heavy interest. "I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper", he said.

"We are talking about top players".

Sarri admits City are also hindered by players absent on post-World Cup breaks, but the situation contrasts with Chelsea's as he is new to the role.
