When asked whether the whole situation was odd, he added, "I think so". So I don't know.
Courtois is eager to return to Madrid, where his family are based, but Chelsea will not allow him to leave until they have found a new stopper.
However, the 29-year-old winger who has been at the centre of speculations about a potential exit all summer long, reported late and this made the manager unhappy. 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.
Close friends of the Chelsea No. 1 were reportedly told that the Belgian is desperate to see a move to Real go through, but Chelsea apparently feel the £31 million (R539 million) fee that has been offered is far too low.
Neither "agent" has any relationship with Willian, and in a message alongside the picture the Chelsea star pledged to take legal action over the letter, which he says contains a forgery of his signature.
"Yes I do. I'm very confident".
Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois is determined to quit for Real Madrid with just five days of the transfer window remaining. So I don't know the situation in this moment. It was a very positive conversation so I am happy about it. It depends on the club. "I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper", he said.
Los Blancos only value Courtois at £35million, in line with their wider stance on goalkeepers. "It's very important for us to keep the top players".
Sarri admits City are also hindered by players absent on post-World Cup breaks, but the situation contrasts with Chelsea's as he is new to the role.
