Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has dismissed reports linking Brazilian forward, Willian with a move away from Stamford Bridge to join Barcelona this January transfer window.

"You have to ask the club about the market, if you ask me I will get in trouble because I don't know the answer", said Sarri when asked about Willian. I have no idea.

Willian has been a Barcelona target in the past, on more than one occasion, but Chelsea are not believed to be interested in letting him go for Malcom plus a sum of cash which would value the deal at around £50 million.

When it was suggested to Sarri that he would not want to lose Willian, the Italian said: "Of course not, because Willian for us is really very important".

The Associated Press reports that the inflators can explode with too much force and hurl shrapnel into drivers and passengers. The recalls forced Takata of Japan to seek bankruptcy protection and sell most of its assets to pay for the fixes.

The Blues looks set to lose experienced midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Monaco soon and Sarri has already stated that he would like to sign a player to replace the Spain worldwide.

Despite the fact Fabregas is still a Chelsea player, Sarri does not expect to be able to call upon the 31-year-old for Saturday's visit of Newcastle, claiming he is not in the right frame of mind to contribute to the team.

"At the moment, he is here, so I think he has to think only of playing, because in this moment in Europe there are another 300 players involved in the market and they must only think to next matches or it's impossible to play".

"At the moment, for his mental condition, he is not able to play I think".
