Chelsea make Jack Butland new top target to replace Courtois

Chelsea make Jack Butland new top target to replace Courtois

Brazilian global Willian has given Chelsea a huge boost by committing his future to the Premier League giants as the futures of Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard remain in doubt.

Courtois was absent from training on Monday without permission from the Blues, and it's clear that the goalkeeper is attempting to force through a move away from Stamford Bridge, a transfer that Los Blancos have been confident of since the World Cup.

Willian admits that he found it "difficult" to play for Antonio Conte and hopes for a better relationship with new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri. "For him this is a big decision because he wants to be near his family, and there is an offer in place for Chelsea to accept".

The Blues kick-off their Premier League campaign away to David Wagner's Huddersfield on Saturday and can now be backed out at 14/1 to win the Premier League title. I want to hear if Courtois will say the same to me. My head is here at the Chelsea, but we never know about tomorrow.

The 27-year-old asked new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri for the extra time off following his World Cup exertions with Belgium, who he helped to a third-place finish at the finals in Russian Federation.

However, it's not just Sarri who wants him to remain.

Apart from his maiden ton on the English soil in the first innings, Kohli came back with a gritty fifty in the second innings. I'm just so proud to be a part of this group and playing for England. "But two Tests in, it's very easy to get carried away".

The fire burned slowly for days before winds suddenly whipped it up last week and drove it furiously through brush and timber. Other fires raging in the state include the Mendocino Complex, comprised of two blazes: the River Fire and the Ranch Fire.

Real Madrid have been monitoring Hazard for some time now and Chelsea would not like this to move forward any further.

"I have no reaction to the agent, I am not interested", said Sarri after suffering his first competitive loss as Chelsea manager in the 2-0 Community Shield defeat to Manchester City on Sunday. Regardless, with time a healer, the Belgian had actually been honoured by Genk before kick-off at their game against Sint-Truiden on Sunday, presenting the match ball at the Luminus Arena and accepting a large picture of him in action during his time at the club.

I would like to know if Courtois would tell me the same thing.

Real Madrid have been keeping tabs on the winger over the last few months, but the European champions have reportedly been unwilling to spend silly money to get their man.

"I hope we can understand it quickly and can fight for all the titles", Luiz said.

Chelsea kick off their 2018/19 Premier League campaign on Saturday afternoon with a trip to Huddersfield Town. "Conte was a coach I found very hard to work with".
