Willian: Barcelona the only club to make official offer for me

Guardiola quote Courtois could leave Chelsea if he is not motivated, says Sarri

With just a few weeks remaining in the window, the 26-year-old goalkeeper has gone to extreme measures to try and force his current club to make a move.

Courtois was named best goalkeeper at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, where Belgium beat England in the third-place play-off.

According to ESPN, Willian said: "I'm a Chelsea player".

"The only cub who made an offer for me was Barcelona", revealed the player.

"If Courtois says the same to me, [then] I have to speak with my club, of course, because I want only players with a very high level of motivation".




And he has now motored on to his double century after his left-footed strike early in the Community Shield final against Chelsea as he continues to rewrite history for the Club.

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

Jan Oblak has established himself as one of the most coveted goalkeepers in Europe at Atletico Madrid, while reports in England have linked Chelsea with a move for Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland. "I think he will be a very useful player for us". Obviously we have a new manager now, he's got a new philosophy and we're looking good in training. "Sarri is a coach who likes to play football, he likes to bring the ball out from deep", said Willian.

Giroud told Le Dauphine: "I have heard many things that have been said in the media".

And Willian, who has been with Chelsea since 2013, has now committed his future to the west London club. The other clubs that compete with us are really strong and already have fantastic teams and squads, like Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, or they are investing massively like, for example, Liverpool, that is buying everything and everybody.
