Sarri finally opens up about Willian’s odd absence at Chelsea

Sarri finally opens up about Willian’s odd absence at Chelsea”

When asked about whether or not he is frustrated by the issue, he said: "I want to speak to him before I answer these questions".

The 29-year-old winger is still absent, and an expired passport is reportedly the reason why he hasn't made the trip back to London just yet.

But Sarri indicated his desire to keep his best players at the club ahead for the new season.

Sarri agreed that the situation was "strange" and now wants to hold discussions with Willian, who has been linked with a £65 million move to Madrid, to first fully understand the situation.

Chelsea were beaten on penalties by Arsenal in Dublin on Wednesday night following a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes, but Sarri admitted afterwards that he's not pleased with Willian.

After finishing the Premier League season in fifth, and having whinged all season about a lack of signings, Chelsea finally put Conte out of his misery last month, replacing him with his fellow compatriot Sarri.

"I don't know him", he told beIN Sports.

The controversial Italian head coach made Italy worldwide Jorginho his first summer signing in a £57m deal from Serie A runners up Napoli to improve Chelsea FC's midfield.

Willian is not the only Chelsea player to be linked with a move away as doubts remain over teammates Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois. I don't know the situation at this moment. There is no news.

"We are talking about top players".
