Chelsea boss Sarri confirms crunch Willian talks

  • Community Shield

Brian McClair, who played for United from 1987 to 1998, told BBC World Service Sport: "You should, at some point, look as though you are enjoying it. Jose maybe enjoys himself internally but from a football point of view, the Manchester United fans would very much welcome to see him smiling and laughing at appropriate times".

The two men were brought together in June by Arrigo Sacchi, the former AC Milan manager, and while Guardiola urged the former Napoli manager to move to the Premier League, he recalled his own problems in his first year at the Etihad Stadium before overseeing last season's stroll to become champions.

The Premier League champions remain in the market for midfield reinforcement having missed out on the proposed signing of Jorginho, who will instead line up for Chelsea against City in Sunday's Community Shield. I have never met one striker who fights like he fights.

But he insists there was no issue and Sarri remains confident Willian will be at Stamford Bridge when the transfer window closes.

However, it doesn't look like the Brazil global will be going anywhere before next week's deadline after Antonio Conte's departure prompted the arrival of former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri. He didn't want to come.

"We want him to stay but he does not have a work permit yet so we will try to convince the federation to allow him to stay", the City manager said.




In each of the past two Community Shield matches, new signings have scored, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic netting for Manchester United against Leicester City in 2016 and Sead Kolasinac doing likewise for Arsenal previous year.

The glorified friendly between the league champions and the FA Cup winners has been a notoriously poor predictor of success in recent years - no victor has gone on to be crowned champions in the same season since Manchester United in 2010-11. 'Not about his future. "I'm so happy he came here". It was a very positive conversation.

"Yes I do. I'm very confident". I think it will be a good game.

'At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of Chelsea, ' said Sarri.

'So, I don't know. It depends especially on him. If that was not the case then Fernandinho last season would not have extended the contract, and now Gabriel.
