Willian Fails To Report For Chelsea Training Amidst Real Madrid Rumours

Christian Pulisic Dortmund Real Madrid

The situation has similarities to the one that the Blues found themselves in past year, when Diego Costa attempted to force a move to Atletico Madrid by refusing to return for pre-season.

Chelsea have accepted a bid from Manchester United for Willian, and the Red Devils could also swoop for another Blues star before the transfer window closes.

Chelsea recently rejected several offers from Barcelona for the player, which prompted the Catalan club to sign Malcom from Bordeaux.

The winger was one of the more consistent players at the club, even during our poor season last time around but he would be reuniting with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford should the move be completed soon.

Club officials knew he was returning late and now expect Willian back at Cobham on Wednesday.

Trump rejects Cohen claim that he knew about 2016 Trump Tower meeting
Cohen privately testified previous year to two Congressional committees investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. CNN first reported that Cohen has said that Trump knew in advance about the meeting and approved it going forward.

Several outlets in the United Kingdom have suggested Real Madrid are now interested in a £65 million deal for Willian while also pursuing Thibaut Courtois.

Willian was a shining light in Chelsea's miserable 2017-18 season and then following it up by being one of Brazil's better players at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Sources told ESPN Brasil that Willian had to renew his passport, but the issue is now resolved and he is due to fly back to London on Tuesday night while the rest of Chelsea's squad travel to Dublin ahead of their second International Champions Cup match against Arsenal at the Aviva Stadium.

Regardless of the rumours surrounding Willian's future, he is expected to return to training in the next couple of days, with the Blues facing Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday prior to their Premier League opener against Huddersfield Town on August 11.

According Spanish media outlet, Sport, Chelsea will offer Willian a new deal with new boss Maurizio Sarri keen to keep hold of their man.
