Why Chelsea's Courtois wants Madrid move

Willian finally breaks his silence over his uncertain future

Sarri admits City are also hindered by players absent on post-World Cup breaks, but the situation contrasts with Chelsea's as he is new to the role.

Express Sport understands that Chelsea have rejected a £31million offer from Real Madrid for their No 1 shot-stopper - who has entered the final year of his contract.

They have tabled a £300,000-a-week offering - an £80,000-a-week upgrade on the deal he now has, which runs out in two years' time.

"Throughout this, it has important for everyone to be reasonable, and the buying club has come up with a reasonable offer for a player who has one year left on his contract when they know they could sign him without a fee in 12 months".

That leaves Chelsea facing nine days to decide whether they are willing to write off £35million, by insisting he stays at Stamford Bridge this season.

"There is not a Willian problem", Sarri said. It was a very positive conversation.

"At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of Chelsea", he said.

The Blues sold their star goalkeeper Petr Cech to London rivals Arsenal a few seasons ago to give Courtois a regular place in the starting line-up of Chelsea. "It depends on the club, it depends especially on him, but I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper". "The match will be very hard for us", he said.

"I spoke yesterday (Thursday) with him about his lateness, not about his future".

Former Levante 'keeper Navas was a big part player for Real last season, with the player's performances helping his side secure a record third consecutive Champions League title.

"We are not at the top level now but we have to try to have a good performance and result".
