Sarri ready for showdown talks with Courtois

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has become increasingly fed up at Manchester United

One of the good bits of news to come out of the club in recent days is that Pedro has chose to extend his contract by a further year and will now remain at Stamford Bridge until at least the summer of 2020.

The Blues have shown positive signs in pre-season but failed to convince in their first competitive outing under the Italian as Manchester City eased to a 2-0 win in the Community Shield.

"The only club I knew that really made an official offer for me was Barcelona".

Willian has pledged his commitment to Chelsea as the futures of Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard remain in doubt.

They have displayed a reluctance to sell to another Premier League club.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has informed new manager Maurizio Sarri he wants to leave, sources close to the club have told ESPN FC.

"We have a new season with a new philosophy, everything is new for everyone".

And this development has led to United calling off their pursuit of Mina and turning their attention back towards Alderweireld. According to The Mirror , Manchester United are closing in on the Belgian International for a reported fee of 60 million.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said he only wanted players "with a very high level of motivation" amid continuing uncertainty about the future of several members of his new team.

Premier League clubs have a shorter period to do their business than their European rivals, after choosing to slash their own transfer window.

Chelsea fans quickly pointed to their transfer activity as one of the reasons behind the defeat having only signed two players this summer.

"I believe we can keep them here and keep them happy, but we will only see when we sit down with them".

The Cherries have agreed a fee understood to be £25million with Spanish club Levante for the 23-year-old.

And although Chelsea will be reluctant to do business, Keys said they have slapped a valuation on the winger.

"I'm not going to comment on all of that at the moment, it's a delicate matter", Courtois said.
