Chelsea make Jack Butland new top target to replace Courtois

Sarri: My Chelsea Still Work In Progress See the touching moment Jorginho's mum was brought to tears by his shirt on sale at Chelsea's megastore

Maurizio Sarri has revealed that he will hold talks with Thibaut Courtois this week about his future at Chelsea FC.

The Slovenian stopper has an £89m release clause, but the Spanish paper writes that Chelsea will pay that in the next 24 hours as they look to push through the move.

Chelsea defender David Luiz insists they can handle the absence of AWOL teammate Thibaut Courtois.

Speaking after the 2-0 Community Shield defeat by Manchester City, he told ESPN Brasil: "I always made it clear that what I wanted was to stay in the club".

"They know Chelsea a lot, so they know what they've had here, the fun they've had here".

"I want to hear from Courtois".

Lynchburg flood: College Lake Dam failure - emergency evacuations
The original surface area of the lake was reported to be 44 acres and has been reduced to 19 acres due to sedimentation. If the dam fails completely, 17ft (5m) of water could flood it in seven minutes, the National Water Service said.

The Brazilian did get 30 mins of game time in the loss to Pep Guardiola's side and even though Chelsea did not do extremely well against City, Willian added that the players like the style that Sarri has brought to the club.

But their summer has been dominated by the possibility of high-profile outgoings with wide-man Willian another who might have left this summer.

Thibaut Courtois' future at Chelsea has been one of the big talking points of the summer, with the Belgium global having been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.

The potential deal is complicated by the fact that the transfer window slams shut on August 9 in England while the rest of Europe have until the end of the month to go about their business.

"He played on Sunday after coming back after the World Cup, and he has already shown his quality".

Chelsea conclude their pre-season this evening at Stamford Bridge against Lyon (8.05pm) and start their Premier League campaign away at Huddersfield on Saturday (3pm).
