"We are talking about top players and I think every club wants to keep top players".
Club director Marina Granovskaia added: "We are very happy to secure Pedro's services for another year". We started two and a half weeks ago.
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.
Sarri will set the framework from the touchlines, and Jorginho will set the tone on the pitch as Chelsea look to pose a challenge to City this season, both in results and style. I'm looking forward to playing well and winning titles'.
It's been an unusual pre-season for the Blues heading into the new season.
"But, I hope that Courtois will be our goalkeeper". 'Not about his future. Sarri insisted last week that there was "no problem" between Willian and the club, but he remains on the wanted list of Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, according to reports. I am very confident'.
"We need Jorginho more than City", said Sarri, with a mischievous smile, on the eve of today's Community Shield meeting with City. "I spoke about positions and characteristics but no names", Sarri told reporters.
Speculation has been rife this summer that Courtois is angling for a return to the Spanish capital - where his children live - with Real Madrid heavily linked with a 35-million-euro move for the Belgium global. It depends especially on him. "And so I hope to see from my team another step".
The Belgian is out of contract next summer and after refusing to sign a new deal, Chelsea are prepared to let him go for around £35m to avoid losing him for free.
