Cape Town - Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says he
wants to have a word with Willian after the Brazilian failed to report for
pre-season training on time.
The 29-year-old winger is still absent, and
an expired passport is reportedly the reason why he hasn't made the trip back
to London just yet.
Willian has already been linked with moves
to Manchester United and Real Madrid and his delayed return to Stamford Bridge
has further fuelled the speculation regarding his potential exit.
Sarri is disappointed that the Brazil
international has not made his return and is hoping to get to the bottom of it
as soon as possible.
"I want to speak to him before I
answer these questions. I want to speak to him," Sarri told reporters
after Chelsea's win over Arsenal via a penalty shootout in Dublin on Wednesday.
"I am not happy about this situation
but before I answer, I would like to speak to him."
