Chelsea may sign one more player- Sarri

Chelsea forward Pedro Rodriguez has signed a one-year contract extension with The Blues.

Despite not making a flurry of signings under Sarri, Chelsea fans are optimistic that the coming season will be a fruitful one as their new coach has promised to bring back lovely football to Stamford Bridge.

The Italian took over from compatriot Antonio Conte last month after almost wrestling the Serie A title from Juventus with old club Napoli last season. "Clearly for me it's very important to win something".

The 26-year-old goalkeeper has been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu for some time after making no secret of his desire to be reunited with his young family in Spain.

"At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of the club, of Chelsea", Sarri told reporters.

"I'm very happy with David, for his attitude". Maybe Liverpool fans are so angry against me because I said two times no to Liverpool.

Club director Marina Granovskaia said: "We are very happy to secure Pedro's services for another year".

Speaking to reporters ahead of Sunday's Community Shield against Manchester City, Sarri hailed Pedro's attacking gifts with the versatile forward having scored twice in pre-season for Chelsea.

Baines was sidelined by injury for more than three months last season, which exposed Everton's lack of cover at left-back, with Cuco Martina forced to play out of position.

"Yes, we were close but in the end Jorginho chose to stay with Sarri", he said. Not at the top level now but we have to try to have a good performance and a good result.

"Contractually he's a Chelsea player, but he's another who had a fantastic World Cup and could play for any team in the world".

"I spoke yesterday (Thursday) with him about his lateness, not about his future".

"He has to improve on the defensive phase, I think".

Chelsea will still be without Eden Hazard, their attacker-in-chief who is yet to return to London from his post-World Cup break.
