Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has admitted he is unhappy with one of his players' late arrival for pre-season, and will seek an urgent meeting with him amid reports linking the footballer with a move to Real Madrid and Manchester United.
Brazil international Willian, who played at the 2018 FIFA World Cup for his country, was due back in England last Friday but did not turn up for pre-season training until Wednesday afternoon as he reportedly had some issues with his passport.
After Chelsea's penalty shootout loss to Arsenal in a friendly in Dublin, Ireland, on Wednesday night, Sarri told members of the media that he would like to meet with Willian, who has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, before he makes any official comment, but also admitted he is not pleased with things as they stand.
"I want to speak to him before I answer these questions," the Italian tactician said, as quoted by The Daily Telegraph.
"I am not happy about this situation but, before I answer, I would like to speak to him."
Spanish giants Real Madrid have reportedly made a £65 million (R1.12 billion) bid for the 29-year-old winger, who is also being closely monitored by United's Jose Mourinho, who is a big admirer of Brazilian.
