Chelsea Manager Sarri Identifies Final Transfer Target for the Window

Chelsea transfer news Willian

Chelsea forward Pedro Rodriguez has signed a one-year contract extension with The Blues. "Clearly for me it's very important to win something".

Maurizio Sarri, though, has come out to give yet another update to the situation, as Real Madrid are regularly linked to the Belgium global. I saw three games [of Chelsea] in pre-season and he got it.

Willian cut a forlorn figure at times under Conte and has been linked with Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid this summer.

"I'm very happy with David, for his attitude".

"I played against City in November last season, in their best moment of the season".

The 59-year-old Napoli boss is eager to do well against Pep Guardiola's City, but he acknowledges the size of the task against the Premier League champions.

The Brazilian made his return to action for the "Blues" on Sunday, coming off the bench in their 2-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Community Shield.

Pedro always performed when called upon but started only 17 times last season under former manager Conte. "The match will be very hard for us", he said.

Asked if he expects the 29-year-old to be part of his midfield this season, Sarri said: "Yes I do". But we have to try to have a good performance. Pedro is one of the prolific wingers for Chelsea who can create lots of chances for the forward to score many goals for the team. It's a insane competition with a high level so I think every manager has the dream to come so he had the chance to come. I am comfortable here and want to win new titles and trophies. I don't know. I am not happy about the situation but I would like to talk to him.
