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

The player was due to return on Monday following his exploits with Brazil in this summer's World Cup.

He confirmed he will talk to Willian about the Brazilian's late return to preseason, admitting that he is "not happy" with the situation and finds the claim that passport issues were responsible for the delay odd. However, Willian failed to report to Cobham Training Centre during that day, the cause of his delayed return being blamed on issues with his passport renewal and not because of a bid from Real Madrid.

However, RMC says Sarri has spoken to Batshuayi and told him he wants the centre-forward to stay.

Willian's misjudgement, by all accounts a genuine mistake, evoked unwanted memories of Diego Costa's self-imposed exile in Lagarto last summer as well as removing him from contention for the Dublin trip. The Chelsea new man was speaking after watching his side go done on penalties to London rivals Arsenal after an entertaining 1-1 friendly draw on Wednesday night.

"I will see them on Saturday for the first time, so I don't know the situation in this moment", he insisted.

When asked if he thought the situation was odd, he said: "I think so".

Kalidou Koulibaly and Dries Mertens were among the other players linked with treading that same path, though it seems that a written contract clause prevented the FA Cup holders from prising away more of Carlo Ancelotti's top talents.

Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has said that youngster, Callum Hudson-Odoi would start for Chelsea in the Community Shield against Manchester City on Sunday. He might be trying to push through a move to Old Trafford in the days to come, which is why Sarri might want to talk to him and clear things out.
