Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri says that he is "very confident" that winger Willian will stay at the club.

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has said that he is "very confident" that winger Willian will stay at the club.

The Brazilian international, who featured at the World Cup, has been linked with a move to Barcelona and Manchester United, with both clubs reported to have made bids for the 29-year-old.

Speaking at a press conference, however, Sarri, who also spoke about Willian's late arrival back to Chelsea, confirmed that he had a "positive conversation" with the player.

"I spoke yesterday with him about him being late, but not about his future," the manager said. "It was a very positive conversation. I am happy about it. There is not a problem with Willian."

When asked if he was confident that Willian would stay in West London, Sarri replied: "Yes. Very confident."

The winger has two years left on his current Chelsea deal.
