Willian was all-smiles as he took part in pre-season training at Chelsea’s Cobham site this afternoon.

The Brazilian returned late from his post-World Cup holiday after passport problems but looks to have settled back in well, despite reports linking him with a move away.

Manchester United and Barcelona have both been touted as possible destinations for the 29-year-old, although Maurizio Sarri is confident the forward will stay at Stamford Bridge.

However, the Blues boss still cut a disgruntled figure as he paced around the training pitches – with the Italian much less sure about goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois’ future.

Courtois, Eden Hazard and Michy Batshuayi are all yet to return to training following the World Cup and the trio have all been rumoured to be heading for the exit this summer.

They will almost certainly not feature when Chelsea take on Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday, although Willian is expected to play a part at Wembley.
