Thibaut Courtois Goes AWOL In Order To Force Real Madrid Move

Thibaut Courtois Goes AWOL In Order To Force Real Madrid Move

Much has been written about his system, but Sarri described it simply as pressing, and control. The other clubs that compete with us are really strong and already have fantastic teams and squads, like Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, or they are investing massively like, for example, Liverpool, that is buying everything and everybody. We didn't talk about this.

Will Maurizio Sarri let Courtois join Real Madrid? "The important thing is to be ready for the new season".

Eden Hazard set to return to Chelsea training after World Cup break.

Similar clarification over goalkeeper Courtois and star man Hazard would be welcome ahead of Thursday's deadline. Getting worked up isn't going to help the situation. Chelsea, on the other hand, have reportedly been reluctant to part ways with their star players, including the Belgian worldwide, as they look to return to the top of English football. "Sometimes [at other clubs] the work has been very long, sometimes not".

Joe Parris , a reporter for KTVB , is now documenting the goat outbreak on Twitter in an event is dubbing "Goat-a-Palooza 2018". The hungry herd moved from lawn to lawn, chewing down grass, munching on rosebushes and stripping low-hanging branches bare.

But Sarri has cooled speculation and played down any potential rift between player and club. Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley, or Ruben Loftus-Cheek will all hope to make it theirs, but the answer to this problem could lie in the transfer market.

"I was just working and trying to do my best", Luiz added. The rest of Chelsea's defensive unit will also need time to adapt, and the transfer market may again be the quickest solution here.

But Courtois - who was due to hold talks with the new Chelsea boss regarding his future - has now gone AWOL with less than 72 hours remaining before the English transfer window closes.

Blues owner Roman Abramovich spent £30m purchasing a penthouse apartment in London last month, but his long-term commitment to his adopted base is now unclear after United Kingdom authorities refused to renew his visa to stay in the country and without him, Chelsea are lacking the leadership he has provided since becoming the chief decision maker 2003. After being out of the Champions League we have to be focused, we have to go game by game to keep improving and then we will see how far we can go.
