Eden Hazard Sarri injuries PS

The Belgian has 18 months left on his existing deal at the club and has admitted that he is torn between signing a new deal or joining La Liga club, Real Madrid.

It is believed that Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has agreed a huge transfer away from the Blues, amid reports he was recently offered a new bumper deal at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues boss now hopes for a successful outcome in those dealings, provided that Hazard wants to stay at Stamford Bridge. I want Eden here, of course, but I want him here if he wants to stay.

"It's very important because he's such a quality player", he said.

"I saw him when he was young, now he is not so young but he can still improve".

"The club is available to sign a new contract immediately but it's up to him if he wants to renew".

Real on the other hand could offer Mateo Kavacic, who is now on loan at the London club, in a player-plus-cash-deal.

Hazard's coach, Maurizio Sarri, is also keen for Chelsea to keep the former Lille man, telling the media this week: "It's up to him".

'It is not easy to answer, but I have seen in the last matches we didn't react as a team or eleven players, so it is a big problem.

"So if there is something new, the club will call me immediately".

"They are very important players for us".

"But I think the manager (Nuno Espirito Santo) is good as well, they are playing a good style of football so it's going to be a good game".

But apart from Hazard, Sarri also risks losing veterans David Luiz and Cesc Fabregas.
