Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has once again reiterated his desire to speak in person to want away trio Eden Hazard, Willian and Thibaut Courtois before making any decision on their future.
All three players have been heavily linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge this summer, with Belgian pair Hazard and Courtois on Real Madrid’s radar, whereas Brazil international Willian is a target for La Liga Champions Barcelona.
However, Sarri has not given up hope of convincing the star trio to stay at Chelsea for the upcoming season, and is eager to speak face to face with each player.
“I like to talk to a person face to face. I do not like to talk to a person by telephone,” the Italian coach told the press after his sides 1-0 pre-season friendly win over Perth Glory earlier today.
“I do not know, it depends on the club. It is clear that for me, it is a pleasure to have Courtois, to have Willian, to have Hazard.
“But it does not depend on me, so we have to wait, I am confident.”
