Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri displeased with Willian's absence at pre-season training

Chelsea Transfer News Maurizio Sarri is still looking to bolster his ranks

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has tipped Maurizio Sarri to be a success at Chelsea. Obviously he won the Golden Gloves at the World Cup.

Asked if any of his World Cup stars would start on Sunday, Sarri continued: 'I don't know.

Willian is not the only Chelsea player to be linked with a move away as doubts remain over teammates Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois.

"I don't know him", he told beIN SPORTS.

Probed on whether he thought Willian would stay at Chelsea, Sarri replied: 'Yes I do.

The failed Pickford move means Chelsea believe they have exhausted their options in terms of a replacement for Courtois.

Sarri has little scope to discipline Willian even if he is inclined to do so; with preseason nearly at an end his other options on the wing are limited to Pedro Rodriguez, Hudson-Odoi and the newly recast Victor Moses.

Los Blancos only value Courtois at £35million, in line with their wider stance on goalkeepers. "It's very important for us to keep the top players".

Hudson-Odoi then made his professional debut for the club in January in the FA Cup and also played a couple of Premier League games under former manager Antonio Conte.

The Belgian striker had a hard start to life as a Chelsea player despite having an impressive repuation when he arrived from Marseille.

That tournament may feel a long time ago now, yet the two Real Madrid targets have barely had a moment out of the headlines since then.
