Barcelona to test Chelsea with bid including World Cup victor Ousmane Dembele


Cesc Fabregas has said he "often" speaks to Eden Hazard in an attempt to convince him not to leave Chelsea this summer.

Meanwhile, new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has insisted he would like to keep Hazard at Stamford Bridge, and is keen to work with his new superstar. But then we will have to see how the transfer market will go over the next few days.

The 31-year-old shared a video that showed the club lifting the three Champions League trophies followed by a display of all of the trophies he has won since joining from Levante in 2014.

Sarri said he was one of the few managers who was "bored" by the transfer market and that his aim was to inject "fun" into his squad.

"I would like to meet these players face to face and talk to them and understand what the best thing is for everyone to do". "I would love us to start well and we are all very excited to start this new adventure".

According to reports in his native Belgium, Courtois will pen a five-year Real deal worth 12m euros a year, and is now awaiting further developments from the Spanish island of Tenerife.

"I hope I will manage to improve him, this is very hard as he is at a high level".

Chelsea made their first signing of the summer in conjunction with Sarri's appointment, buying Italy midfielder Jorginho from the 59-year-old's former club Napoli for a reported £50 million. He knows this will be hard given how the 27-year-old is already one of the best players in Europe.

Willian is reportedly closing in on a move to Barcelona with Philippe Coutinho convincing him to move to the Nou Camp. Barca's No 14 spoke to the Chelsea player a lot about a potential move during the World Cup in Russian Federation.

While Bakayoko struggled for us last time around, he was not the only underperforming player.

'Antonio [Conte] reached incredible results here, he is an extraordinary manager and clearly I play in a slightly different way so it will take some time.
