Courtois fails to report to Chelsea training

Courtois fails to report to Chelsea training

Instead, the apparent no-show only serves to cast further doubt over the 26-year-old's future at Stamford Bridge just five days out from a season-opening trip to Huddersfield Town.

And it is understood the Blues do not know when the 26-year-old Belgium global will return.

Courtois is too much of a coward to return to Cobham and tell Maurizio Sarri to his face that he wants to sign for Real Madrid.

Earlier, reported how Manchester United are said to be targeting Chelsea winger Willian in a stunning deal for the Brazil global.

The new Chelsea boss has had a hard start to life in England, losing the Community Shield to Manchester City on Sunday as well as dealing with ongoing transfer speculation linking a number of his first-team squad with moves away from the club.

Willian has been a summer transfer tussle between Manchester United and Barcelona with the Old Trafford club said to be ready to beat the the Spanish champions to his signing.

Chelsea have reportedly made Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland their top transfer target if Thibaut Coutois leaves the club.

But McDaniel insisted that the "energy of the Republican Party" is "solidly behind the president" and his conservative populist agenda.

Real have bid around £35m for Courtois whose agent, Christophe Henrotay, went public last week calling for Chelsea to allow his client to move.

Manchester City won the game 2-0. "If they decide to leave, I think we will continue with fantastic players".

How did each Chelsea player fare against Man City in the Community Shield? "Yes, my desire is to stay at Milan - I don't have any other,".

How can you keep a player who clearly doesn't want to be there?

"I don't know. I arrived here three weeks ago and have only seen six players", he said.

And the Brazil worldwide has insisted that he is happy to stay at the west London side and battle for a starting spot next season.
