Thibaut Courtois told he can leave Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois told he can leave Chelsea

I think everybody wants to be better than the previous year.

Whether Hudson-Odoi does have a breakout season this year, and it looks increasingly likely he will given Willian's seemingly imminent departure, it is clear that he won't be following the familiar well-trodden path of the typical promising Chelsea youngster.

And the 24-year-old was handed an opportunity to shine on Sunday as Chelsea faced Manchester City in the Community Shield. I think it is very important to start with a trophy.

Sarri wants to narrow the gap to City.

"In this moment it's a very hard match", Sarri said. "Because I only want players with very high levels of motivation". I spoke about positions and characteristics but no names. So I don't know.

"The way he plays, I think will be flawless for English football. But maybe only a player".

Hysaj was on Chelsea's radar during the ongoing transfer window, but following the appointment of Maurizio Sarri last month, the track leading to the full-back went cold.

Samsung leak confirms Galaxy Note 9 design
The launch event for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is set for next week with a big announcement taking place in NY on August 9. The cost of the smartphone was around $700-$750 at launch, but you can get one for less than $500 these days.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United are mooted to be suitors, but Willian insisted he was happy at Stamford Bridge.

Sarri has little scope to discipline Willian even if he is inclined to do so; with preseason nearly at an end his other options on the wing are limited to Pedro Rodriguez, Hudson-Odoi and the newly recast Victor Moses.

He said: 'I'm happy here.

The giant 'keeper is due to return to Chelsea training this weekend after helping Belgium finish third at the World Cup and being voted the best goalkeeper at the tournament.

Courtois's agent, Christophe Henrotay, has said the player wants to move to Real Madrid to be closer to his daughter, who lives in Spain.

Chelsea failed to qualify for the Champions League and Conte was replaced by Sarri, who led Napoli to a second-place finish in Serie A last term. "So I hope to see from my team another step forward". "Pedro is very important for us".

Courtois and Eden Hazard return from their summer break today, when Sarri will speak to them about their futures.
