Pedro renews his Chelsea contract to 2020

Maurizio Sarri intends to hold face-to-face talks with Thibaut Courtois after his agent urged Chelsea to let the goalkeeper join Real Madrid.

Chelsea play league champions Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday, six days before travelling to Huddersfield Town for their opening league fixture on August 11.

But what do Chelsea plan to do with him this season?

I don't think I should be put in a position like that, when you're expected to come out and perform the next day. The wet weather earlier in the week jumbled the schedule and forced others to play two matches on Thursday.

Some supporters have criticised the 26-year-old as they feel that his desire to move to the Bernabeu is being financially driven, but Henrotay has dismissed those claims out of hand. "I spoke about positions but no specifics - no names - so I don't know".

There are many Chelsea fans that are eager for Ruben Loftus-Cheek to stay at the club.

We'd be insane not to add another player or two to our ranks this week, and Sarri appears to hold the same belief.

"If Courtois tomorrow [when he returns to training] will tell me the same [as his agent] I will have to speak with my club of course because I only want players with a very high level of motivation".

"It was a very positive conversation and I am very happy about it".

With Palace's opening game of their Premier League season away to newly-promoted Fulham in just one weeks time, they will need to move quickly should they want to secure his services for the start of the season. "At this point of the season it is important the performance, we have to improve up close". For example, two years ago when we switched to three at the back then from the first day we were very good.

Sarri said he was confident that Brazil playmaker Willian would remain at the club but was less sure over the future of Courtois. Coach's Corner: If not for Ronald Koeman's untimely departure last October, Silva might still be the manager at Watford.
