Tiemoue Bakayoko close to AC Milan loan move from Chelsea

The former Shakhtar Donetsk star played a key part as the Selecao were knocked out in the quarter finals by Belgium.

Although Willian didn't start Sunday's Community Shield match against Manchester City, a 2-0 defeat, he is thought to be in Sarri's plans for his debut season in charge.

It is yet to be seen how interested Chelsea are in subsidising the player's wages. I think the feeling is that he wants to stay.

He told the club's official website: "I am really happy and excited to be here at Chelsea".

Willian added: "I have my head here and I intend to continue in the club unless the club wants to sell me". "But my head is here in the club".

"Of course, the beginning is always a little more hard to adapt to a new style of play, which changes everything, but we have everything we need to improve, to continue working and start the season well".

The Blues have only made three high-profile additions this summer, but Sarri has been left with more than 25 players in his first-team squad.

The summer transfer window is drawing to a close and managers are working hard to secure last minute deals so we'll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe.

Chelsea and Real Madrid have tonight agreed terms for the permanent transfer of Thibaut Courtois subject to the agreement of personal terms and passing a medical. Yet he was not able to satisfy the Chelsea bosses of his reliability as he had a dodgy first season.
