Sarri predicts Barkley being 'useful' for Chelsea

Hazard and his compatriot, Thibaut Courtois, are both due to return to the club soon and the situation is similar for both - Real Madrid are showing an interest.

The 29-year-old says his five-year spell at Stamford Bridge is set to continue.

"But Willian is sure new boss Maurizio Sarri's methods will come good, saying: "[Sarri] is a manager who likes to play football, a manager who has a game philosophy similar to Manchester City.

Chelsea have signed former England No.1 Robert Green as backup this summer while Polish teenager Marcin Bulka has impressed during pre-season.

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.

According to ESPN, Willian said: "I'm a Chelsea player".

Courtois has a year remaining on his contract and has been repeatedly linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Butland is a long-time Chelsea target, but talks have yet to begin and the Potteries club are concerned about having time to find a replacement.

"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. 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. "Everybody loves them and I hope they can stay".

We talked only about 'can I arrive on Monday instead of Sunday?'

The Belgian indicated during the summer that he is keen to leave Chelsea in the ongoing window, with Real Madrid believed to be his preferred choice of destination.

Courtois told Belgian TV: "I'm not going to comment". It's a club with a great history, we've won loads of big trophies, and we always want to do that.
