  • Chelsea midfielder Willian sends message to Man United about Old Trafford move

Brazil winger Willian has been strongly linked with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Jorginho's £57 million ($86m) move to Chelsea has moved his mother to tears, with the midfielder's family sharing in the delight of the 26-year-old fulfilling his dreams.

Chelsea's golden gloves winning man at goal, Thibaut Courtois has been a subject of interest of this summer's transfer window as the heavy transfer speculation continued to mount around the Belgian.

Citing 'sources close to the club, ' ESPN has claimed that the outcome of that meeting was Courtois telling Sarri that he wants to move on.

Courtois is due back for pre-season training on Monday, with the Premier League campaign starting for the Blues at Huddersfield on Saturday, and Sarri is ready to discuss the issue with his player.

There were preliminary talks between the two clubs but Chelsea stood firm on their part and requested a near world-record fee for his services. The only club I knew that made an official offer for me was Barcelona. "I have been reading everywhere that Chelsea are saying it is up to Thibaut", Henrotay had told the Sun.

Sarri was appointed three weeks ago after Antonio Conte was sacked as head coach and Chelsea were well beaten by Manchester City in Sunday's Community Shield at Wembley.

With Sarri since being brought in as a replacement for Conte, Willian hopes for a better relationship with the 59-year-old.

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.

While Courtois is attempting to engineer a move away, Hazard has decided not to agitate for his own switch to Real.

Let us know in the comments.
