Willian absent from Chelsea training amid Real Madrid rumours

There were recently also reports of Real Madrid being set to sign Eden Hazard and the Belgian making it clear he wanted to leave Chelsea.

Brazil and Chelsea star Willian has been reported absent from training as rumours of a Real Madrid bid for the player continue to grow.

However, Madrid aren't ready to let the Croatian worldwide leave on the cheap as the Spanish publication says the European champions are demanding around £71m for Kovacic and they'd also need to sign a replacement before letting him leave.

Yet the Brazilian has insisted he is happy at Chelsea.

"I am very happy at Chelsea, and I am very happy living in London".

Which makes reports that he failed to report back to the club for pre-season training on the expected date all the more odd.

Alderweireld has been one of the best defenders in the Premier League over the past few seasons, and his future at Tottenham is up in the air with the Belgium worldwide barely featuring since the turn of the New Year.

The Times report that Willian is claiming a passport issue as the reason behind his absence.

The situation has similarities to the one that the Blues found themselves in past year, when Diego Costa attempted to force a move to Atletico Madrid by refusing to return for pre-season. So far, Willian hasn't done that.

Willian was speaking to Brazilian news company Globo Esporte and although most of the questions were about the Brazil national team and his future regarding his country Willian did confirm he was happy at Chelsea. Chelsea will not sell until they get replacements in.
