Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois wants Real Madrid move

Sarri also provided an update on Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois - both of whom have been linked with moves to Real Madrid this transfer window.

The Belgian's agent, Christophe Henrotay, has confirmed his client wants to join the European champions in order to be closer to his children, who live in Madrid.

'I am thrilled with the goalkeepers that I have and I will not talk about players who are not part of this team'.

The Belgian is due to return to Chelsea training over the next few days after helping his country finish third at the World Cup and being voted the best goalkeeper in Russian Federation.

Chelsea are willing to throw all their money at Jan Oblak as they look to replace Real Madrid bound Thibaut Courtois.

"For him, this is a big decision because he wants to be near his family", he said, adding, "there is an offer in place [from Madrid] for Chelsea to accept".

The Times are under the impression that a £65M offer is on the table from Los Blancos, and Willian may well have had his head turned.

However, Barcelona have since signed Bordeaux winger Malcom for a fee that could rise to £37.3m which could spell the end of their interest in Willian. "Or they would still have to sign a replacement next summer, but without getting a fee for Thibaut". "I don't know in the future. I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper", he said. "Every club wants to keep their top players and we are trying to do it".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has admitted he is unhappy with one of his players' late arrival for pre-season, and will seek an urgent meeting with him amid reports linking the footballer with a move to Real Madrid and Manchester United.
