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

A Brazil star, who featured for his country at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, has responded to the transfer rumours surrounding his future amid interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Manchester United could have finally succeeded in their pursuit of Willian, with Chelsea accepting a €75 million bid for the Brazilian worldwide.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is available for selection against Arsenal after deciding to cut short his post-World Cup holiday to begin preseason training on Monday.

Willian has been a target for Manchester United and Barcelona this summer, with the Spanish champions already having three bids rejected for the 29-year-old, the most recent believed to be in excess of £55m.

With Alderweireld's contract due to expire next summer, Manchester United will be hopeful of signing him on a reduced fee, but Tottenham will be well aware of the implications of selling him to a direct Premier League title rival.

"I'm back to England". I'm very happy at Chelsea, ' he said.

It had been claimed in the British media that Real Madrid have made a bid of €110m to land both Courtois and Willian.

"I am very happy at Chelsea and I am very happy living in London", he is quoted by the Mirror as telling Globo Esporte.
