Willian, 29, cut a forlorn figure at times under Conte and has been linked with Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

However, RMC says Sarri has spoken to Batshuayi and told him he wants the centre-forward to stay.

Willian's misjudgement, by all accounts a genuine mistake, evoked unwanted memories of Diego Costa's self-imposed exile in Lagarto last summer as well as removing him from contention for the Dublin trip. "It was a very positive conversation".

Butland's long-term future has been put in doubt ever since their relegation to the Championship last season.

Should Chelsea sign Martial, he would become Maurizio Sarri's third summer signing, following Jorginho and Rob Green to Stamford Bridge. "I don't know in the future". It depends on the club. "It depends on the club, it depends especially on him but I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper".

Chelsea remain determined to keep Hazard from the clutches of Real Madrid, and every day that passes without a mega-offer or player agitation increases their confidence of achieving their aim.

Rangers Trading Cole Hamels To Cubs
With the Cubs over the last two seasons, he has an ERA of 3.98 in 11 starts and 10 relief appearances. "He's a great competitor". With Hamels in tow, the Cubs could also opt to move Chatwood into the bullpen in an attempt to get his mechanics smoothed out.

Pedro impressed in the pre-season tour for Chelsea.

And when asked how confident he was about that prediction, Sarri replied: "Very confident". We started two and a half weeks ago.

Pedro was delighted with extending his stay at Chelsea, saying on the club's official website, "It's important for me to continue with Chelsea, I am comfortable here and want to win new titles and trophies".

"We have to improve, of course".
