The 26-year-old was coveted by most of Europe's big clubs, including Manchester City, but the Blues beat them all to his signature to make him the marquee signing of their summer window.

Chelsea have signed former England No.1 Robert Green as backup this summer while Polish teenager Marcin Bulka has impressed during pre-season. "I don't know in the future".

'Pep is a friend, so I respect him as a person, ' said Sarri. The Italian said that was one of the reasons his team were soundly beaten 2-0 by Manchester City in the Community Shield. I'm happy to be at Chelsea. And, it was very hard, very difficult.

He learned the game thanks to his mum, Maria Tereza Freitas, teaching him to play football on the beaches of the South American country as a child. "Sometimes [at other clubs] the work has been very long, sometimes not". Under Sarri's guidance at Napoli, the Brazil-born midfielder had blossomed into one of Europe's most coveted players, and had risen to such heights in Italy that he was even anointed as the heir to the great Andrea Pirlo. I played against City last season, played them in their best moment of the season. The first 20 minutes was a nightmare, it was frightful.

"Obviously we have a new manager now, he's got a new philosophy and we're looking good in training". I think it is very important to start with a trophy.

Since the Italy global moved to Stamford Bridge, City have been linked to a succession of high-end alternatives from Juventus' Miralem Pjanic to Real Madrid's Mateo Kovacic and Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti.

The Chelsea head coach will meet Courtois when he returns to the club's Cobham training base today from his post-World Cup holiday.
