  • Willian I want an extra five years at Chelsea

The 31-year-old moved to Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain, two years after Chelsea's historic triumph in Munich, and returned two years later to lift his first ever Premier League title during Conte's first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are in action at home to Cardiff City on Saturday but Sarri believes they are still a long way from title contenders despite four wins out of four so far.

"The last time I have spoken with him, he told me that he wants to play for another season", Sarri said.

"I don't know now the situation. I am talking about a week ago".

The hunch is that a title win is too much to ask in this transitional campaign, especially as the club will have at least six Thursday night assignments in the Europa League.

Putin: Poisoners? They’re just these guys, you know?
Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said the Russian leader had merely voiced a hope that they would appear publicly in the future. British prosecutors issued European arrest warrants last week for Petrov and Boshirov, charging them with conspiracy to murder.

The Blues are now preparing to welcome the Welsh side to Stamford Bridge as Maurizio Sarri's men look to continue their fine start to the new campaign.

Maurizio Sarri has claimed he does not see Chelsea challenging for the Premier League title in his debut season in charge, adding that Manchester City and Liverpool are now the main title contenders. Fortunately, we have very strong young players: "Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Ampadu. and I'd like to give them the right space".

Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "Like Liverpool and Watford, Chelsea have got a 100 per cent record from their first four league games and I see that flawless start continuing here. We need another step to be at the same level", said the Blues head coach. Only because after the first season the players understood the difficulty of this kind of match.

"I remember in my first season in Naples, the average points per match during the season was 2.28, I think". I don't know (the chances) he told me other things, he told me he wants to play but I don't know, I have to speak to him again. I think so, but I hope not.

"I just want to do my best for this club, which has done a lot for me".
