On the other hand, Olivier Giroud has also been linked with a move away from Chelsea after winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup title with France in Russian Federation.

His agent is quoted as saying the 26-year-old wants to move to Real Madrid, with new Blues boss Sarri set to hold face-to-face talks with the shot-stopper.

Courtois was named best goalkeeper at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, where Belgium beat England in the third-place play-off.

"My transfer? I am not going to say anything about that now, it is a delicate situation", he told Belgian press.

"I hope he [Sarri] is not like Conte", said Willian to ESPN Brazil.

Courtois' club and worldwide colleague Eden Hazard is another who has been strongly linked with a transfer to Madrid in this window.

He has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid and he has previously stated that he would like to go back to Madrid due to family reasons.

Aguero edged past Eric Brook's 78-year record as City's all-time top scorer when he scored the third in the 4-2 win over Napoli last November to top Brook's 177 total.

The decision to bring the deadline forward so that no new signings can be added before the Premier League season begins, plus the World Cup, means the final days of the window could be frantic. Sarri's men never really looked like a threat to the reigning Premier League champions and the scoreline could have been much worse had second-choice goalkeeper Willy Caballero not had a fine afternoon.

However, it's not just Sarri who wants him to remain. "I think he will be a very useful player for us".

"My method has always been to speak with players face-to-face and then we will see what the best solution if for them and Chelsea".

Their search has so far hit a brick wall, leaving the West London club to switch their attention to Stoke City and England 'keeper Jack Butland, according to reports by Sky Sports.
