One of Jose Mourinho's favourite players, Willian, has confirmed to Brazilian press that he will remain a Chelsea player, quashing any Manchester United rumours. It was a very positive conversation.

"I am not happy about this situation but, before I answer, I would like to speak to him".

"Not at this moment, no, because I will see them on Saturday for the first time. I am happy about it".

The 26-year-old has a year to run on his current contract and has been continually linked with a move prior to the summer transfer window closing, with Real Madrid rumoured to be his most likely destination if he is sold.

The club are fully aware of his movements and say they gave him prior permission to return late following his World Cup campaign with Brazil this summer, dismissing reports he had gone AWOL.

This news will be great news for Los Blancos supporters, as it means that their club will have two top class goalkeepers in their ranks next season should Courtois finalise a move to the European champions. "I don't know in the future". It depends on the club.

Despite their Courtois stance, Chelsea are less reluctant to allow Hazard to leave and hope to tie their star winger down to a new-and-improved long-term deal. It depends especially on him, I think.

Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri will be delighted with this news as Willian has the potential to be one of the Blues' key player in the Premier League and Europa League next season.

Willian trained alone at Cobham on Wednesday afternoon and is expected to be available for Chelsea's clash with Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday, though he is unlikely to start.
