Chelsea Transfer News Willian is still being linked with a Stamford Bridge exit

Jose Mourinho is tipping new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri to do well in his first season in the Premier League.

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

Rumours of discontent had been swirling at the conclusion of Chelsea's previous campaign, and the Express also claim that Courtois has informed those around him he is keen to secure his Real Madrid switch.

'It was a very positive conversation.

Chelsea have finally decided that goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois will not be allowed to join Real Madrid this summer.

"At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of the club, of Chelsea", Sarri added.

No policy changes came out of the summit, Mattis said on Friday, adding he had also not been given new direction on Syria. A U.S. special counsel is now investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian spies to manipulate the vote.

"I will see them on Saturday for the first time - I don't know the situation", said Sarri.

Jorginho has single-handedly transformed the complexion of this Chelsea team, dictating possession from the base of midfield and organising the press. It depends especially on him, I think. We started two and a half weeks ago. AC Milan have been heavily linked but the Italian giants have reportedly been put off by a very steep £62 million price tag which may suggest that the 25-year-old has a future under Sarri.

"I want to win, because it's very important to have immediately a trophy".

When asked about whether or not he is frustrated by the issue, he said: "I want to speak to him before I answer these questions".

Sarri has little scope to discipline Willian even if he is inclined to do so; with preseason nearly at an end his other options on the wing are limited to Pedro Rodriguez, Hudson-Odoi and the newly recast Victor Moses.

"We have to improve, of course".
