Thibaut Courtois could leave Chelsea in the coming days, admits Maurizio Sarri

I want to hear [from] Courtois.

His children still live in Madrid and a return to the Spanish capital - this time with cross-city rivals Real - is now coveted by the 26-year-old.

Chelsea already rejected a bid for Willian from Barcelona and now the Italian manager has stated that the Belgian's future lies in his own hands.

"He has made it clear to the club that the best option for him is to move to Madrid", his agent, Christophe Henrotay, was quoted as saying in recent days.

Courtois registered a total of 45 senior appearances for Genk, winning a domestic title in 2010/11 before being snapped up by Chelsea and promptly dispatched for a loan spell at Atletico Madrid that eventually ran for three seasons.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on adding to his squad but could see outgoings first.

Man United's pursuit of a new central defender is still underway though, and it's like one of Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld, Leicester City's Harry Maguire, Barcelona's Yerry Mina or Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng will arrive before Thursday evening.

United have an abundance of centre-backs - Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones. Guardiola said: "We are trying".

"The people know we have a lot of competitions to play. But if he doesn't come, there will not come anyone else".

The Toffees are said to have reached a £28.5million, five-year deal for the Colombia worldwide, who is set to be the second Barca player to switch from the Nou Camp to Goodison Park this summer after Lucas Digne.

It may be slightly cliche, but keeping hold of Hazard is as good as any signing we could have made this summer.

The Brazilian midfielder has been a target for several clubs this summer.

The Belgian global goalkeeper has just one year remaining on his deal with Chelsea and has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
