Willian absent from Chelsea training amid Real Madrid rumours

Willian absent from Chelsea training amid Real Madrid rumours

Willian's return to pre-season training with Chelsea has been delayed due to issues relating to the renewal of his passport.

Roberto Firmino and Alisson have both returned to Liverpool training on Tuesday after also featuring for Brazil at the World Cup.

Reports on Wednesday claimed Courtois had handed the FA Cup holders an ultimatum, threatening to walk away in 12 month's time unless he is sold this summer but Lopetegui, who replaced Zinedine Zidane in June, is adamant he is satisfied with Real Madrid's current goalkeepers.

Chelsea are adamant that Loftus-Cheek is not for sale despite interest from a number of Premier League clubs, though there is an acceptance that he may have to leave on loan again if Sarri can not offer him a significant first-team role.

However, nothing has been confirmed yet and although there might be interest to buy, Madrid may have no interest in selling. Modric has made 44 appearances for both club and country this season scoring four goals and claiming eight assists.

Chelsea are expected to play 4-3-3 under new boss Maurizio Sarri and so Eden Hazard and Charly Musonda would be the only remaining wingers, with the latter yet to break into the first team.

Willian has been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid this summer, but the Catalan giants appear to have turned their attentions elsewhere after completing a £36.5 million deal for Bordeaux winger Malcom. 'I want to speak to him. "I am not happy about this situation but before I answer, I would like to speak to him".

Asked if he found Willian's reason for returning late unusual, Sarri replied: "I think so". "There is no news".

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. "In the future he will be a very, very strong player for sure".
