‘MY FUTURE IS HERE’
BARCELONA target Willian has said he wants to stay at Chelsea – with manager Maurizio Sarri describing him as “fundamental” to his plans.
The Brazilian was the Blues’ hero against Newcastle, scoring a stunning winner in a 2-1 victory.
‘I NEED A PLAYER’
CHELSEA manager Maurizio Sarri again stressed he needs cover for Jorginho after the sale of Cesc Fabregas – but claims he does not know when that player will arrive.
The Blues allowed fans’ favourite Fabregas to leave for Monaco this week – the World Cup winner had been frustrated at his lack of playing time.
CHELSEA remain hopeful of bagging striker Gonzalo Higuain in the transfer window as AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso refused to rule out losing the Argentinian.
Gattuso told reporters that he hoped Higuain remained at his club for as long as possible but hinted that the decision was out of his hands.

CHELSEA fans were furious with manager Maurizio Sarri after he dropped talented teenager Callum Hudson-Odoi back to the bench.
