Chelsea's Pedro signs one-year contract extension

Chelsea's Pedro signs one-year contract extension

He did it - the team in a short time plays like he wants.

Willian looked to be in high spirits as he reported back to Chelsea FC to begin pre-season training over the weekend.

Courtois missed the Blues' 2-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Community Shield, as he is still on holiday following his Belgium exploits in the World Cup.

"I want to win, because it's very important to have a trophy immediately. The important thing is to be ready for the new season". I'm happy to be at Chelsea. It was very hard, very difficult.

"I talk with the club about the market but only one or maybe two times, not more. I think so He will be staying with us for all the season".

Hysaj was on Chelsea's radar during the ongoing transfer window, but following the appointment of Maurizio Sarri last month, the track leading to the full-back went cold.

The forward has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Barcelona, but Sarri said he was not concerned that his delayed arrival had anything to do with engineering a move away.

Thibaut Courtois is undoubtedly one of the best goalkeepers in the world and no team would like to lose the player of his calibre and quality.

He reported late for Chelsea duty after the World Cup in Russian Federation, where Brazil reached the quarter-finals before being ousted 2-1 by Belgium.

'In the first half it was not too bad, ' Sarri said after the loss. So, I don't know. "I'm so happy he came here".

But Sarri seemed less certain about the future of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who reportedly wants out with just a year left on his contract.

Chelsea failed to qualify for the Champions League and Conte was replaced by Sarri, who led Napoli to a second-place finish in Serie A last term.

Jones added on the potential of either of those star turns taking in a change of scenery: "With Eden I don't know".

"We are not at the top level now but we have to try to have a good performance and result".

Sarri admits City are also hindered by players absent on post-World Cup breaks, but the situation contrasts with Chelsea's as he is new to the role.
