  • Maurizio Sarri says he expects Willian to be part of his midfield this season

Sarri was less sure about the future of Courtois amid speculation that the goalkeeper wants to leave Chelsea and join Real Madrid.

The Belgian is due to return to Chelsea training over the next few days after helping his country finish third at the World Cup and being voted the best goalkeeper in Russian Federation.

Henrotay said: "I have been reading everywhere that Chelsea are saying it is up to Thibaut".

The goalkeeper wants to return to Madrid to be closer to his family and experience a new challenge after four years as Chelsea's No.1.

The new boss Maurizio Sarri is asked about his opinion on the transfer rumours involving the Belgian, He said, "At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of Chelsea".

Sources told ESPN Brasil that the delay was caused by an expired passport, and Chelsea as a club have no immediate concerns about his attitude or commitment in a summer in which Barcelona and Manchester United have both expressed an interest in signing him.

She told her biographer Andrew Morton that after her engagement to the Prince of Wales: "I cried like a baby to the four walls". Meghan isn't the first royal to receive an animal-friendly gift. "She's been welcomed by Harry's close friends".

"But he has turned down a better offer elsewhere because this is more than a financial decision".

Should Willian leave the South-West London club they would surely have to dip into the transfer market once again as they do not possess a replacement out-and-out winger.

Courtois has a year left on his contract with Chelsea and is pushing for an exit from Stamford Bridge this summer, with his eyes set on a move to Real Madrid this summer.

According to The Sun, the player's agent has called on Chelsea to let Courtois move before the transfer window closes later this month.

The loss of Courtois would be a major blow for Chelsea as he has made 126 Premier League appearances for the club, conceding 121 goals and keeping 49 clean sheets in the process.
