A lot has been said and reported about Willian this summer, as the Brazilian has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Barcelona.
Willian missed five days of Chelsea’s pre-season tour because he failed to renew his passport, and then took extra time before returning to training on Wednesday.
Sarri described the situation as ‘strange’ earlier this week, but after speaking to Willian he is happy to welcome him back into the fold.
Sarri admitted that his meeting with Willian was based on his lateness not his future.
Ahead of Sunday’s Community Shield showdown with Manchester City, Sarri said: “I spoke yesterday with him about his lateness.
“Not about his future. It was a very positive conversation so I am happy about it. I think there is not a Willian problem.”
When further probed on Willian’s future, Sarri said: “Yes I do. [I’m] very confident.”
