Willian returns to Chelsea FC amid transfer reports

Posted August 06, 2018

"(If) I want to stay here for 10 years, then I have to win", the head coach said.

The former Barcelona forward has won the Premier League and FA Cup since switching to Stamford Bridge from Camp Nou three years ago.

However, supporter RomaFC was left "very disappointed" by the Chelsea management's decision to offer an extension to Pedro, stating there are better youngsters already at the club.

There is less bullishness about Thibaut Courtois, who has shown little interest in extending the contract that expires next summer, but all parties know a high-quality replacement goalkeeper must be secured before he is allowed to leave.

Thibaut Courtois' future at Chelsea remains uncertain, but Sarri hopes the Belgium goalkeeper will stay. "I am happy about it". Under Sarri's guidance at Napoli, the Brazil-born midfielder had blossomed into one of Europe's most coveted players, and had risen to such heights in Italy that he was even anointed as the heir to the great Andrea Pirlo.

Willy Caballero deputised in Courtois' absence and after a nervy start to the game, the veteran Argentine goalkeeper made some important saves to keep the scoreline respectable.

Chelsea kick off their Premier League campaign with an away trip at Huddersfield on Saturday, and Sarri must complete his transfer business on Thursday.

Chelsea play Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday (15:00 BST).

"We know that they are a very good team, but we will try to play our game".

Sarri succeeded Antonio Conte few weeks ago after the latter fell out of favour with the club's hierarchy last season.

"There is not a Willian problem", Sarri said.

"He has to improve on the defensive phase, I think". "Obviously we have a new manager now, he's got a new philosophy and we're looking good in training".

"I am comfortable here and want to win new titles and trophies", said Pedro.
