Courtois fails to report for Chelsea training again

Antonio Sarri wants only “motivated players” as transfer deadline approaches
| 07 August, 2018, 17:28

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri had planned to hold talks with Courtois in a last-ditch bid to convince him to remain at Stamford Bridge for one more season.

But according to The Sun, the club have scheduled a meeting with Courtois for tomorrow lunchtime and could punish him with a fine up up to two weeks wages.

He's always been linked with a return to Madrid, where his family live following his three-year loan spell at Real's local rivals Atletico Madrid.

The Mirror reported over the weekend that United are ready to approach Chelsea to offer them a swap deal involving Martial and Willian as Mourinho is prepared to trade the unsettled French worldwide to sign one of his long-term targets.

Real Madrid have been strongly linked with a move for Courtois and are reported to have had several offers knocked back by Chelsea this summer.


Willian's future this transfer window has been uncertain, with Barcelona and Manchester United reportedly interested in the 29-year-old's services.

Los Blancos have not yet made a breakthrough in their pursuit of the Belgium global, with Chelsea waiting to have their replacement lined up before sanctioning the deal.

Chelsea winger, Willian, has admitted he hopes to "someday" work with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho again.

"But I have my head here and I intend to continue in the club unless the club wants to sell me".

Chelsea have been reluctant to let their No. 1 goalkeeper leave this summer as it does not give them much time to sign a replacement before Thursday's transfer deadline for Premier League clubs.
