Maurizio Sarri sends message to Chelsea FC fans about Ross Barkley

Victor Moses was a former Wigan player

That is according to Belgian football expert Kristof Terreur.

The Belgian was also meant to be at Sunday's Community Shield game against Manchester City with the other non-playing squad members but again did not show up.

The Blues have so far only signed Rob Green and Jorginho ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline.

Willian was also linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea rebuffed offers from Barcelona earlier in the transfer window and the appointment of Maurizio Sarri to replace Antonio Conte as manager appears to have eased any desire to leave from the winger.

Reports suggest Real Madrid target Courtois did not report to the team's Cobham base and he was conspicuously absent from an image gallery posted to the club website.

Trump's freakish and inaccurate claims in support of the laws certainly won't help win much additional support on the issue. He issued a vialed threat about a government shutdown unless congress acts to fully fund a boarder wall.

Everton, meanwhile, asked for £58m for Pickford, but Chelsea have now opted to spend more to ensure the arrival of one of the world's best goalkeepers.

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

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.

"I always made it clear that what I wanted was to stay in the club. If Courtois says the same, I have to speak with my club of course because I only want players with a very high level of motivation".

It has been reported that Chelsea will not let go of Courtois until they have signed a suitable replacement, but with rumoured target Alisson completing a move to Liverpool, there seems to have been no progress on any new addition.
