Heskey claims Hazard ot get Sarri the Chelsea sack as target Varane eyeing Real Madrid exit
Emile Heskey has claimed Eden Hazard could get Maurizio Sarri sacked by Chelsea this summer.
We are in a battle with Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham for that final Champions League spot and are already out the chase for any domestic titles, with the Europa League the Blues only real chance of picking up some silverware.
And Heskey says star man Hazard has not played at his best this season, which ultimately has led to Sarri struggling in his first campaign in England and that is why he could get the sack at the end of the season.
“I’d be very surprised if he’s there next season,” Heskey said on Sky Sports.
“It’s been a difficult season for him.
“You’ve got talisman like Hazard, a couple of seasons ago we were touting him as the best in the Premier League, probably the best in Europe.
“You need players like that stepping up to the plate.
“I think he still could go [even if Chelsea win the Europa League].
“I think they’re probably looking at the future now and thinking they’re quite far behind a lot of the teams that they are hoping to be in the mix with in the top four and winning the league.”[the_ad id=”164″]
Meanwhile, Raphael Varane is considering a move away from Real Madrid despite Zinedine Zidane’s return as manager.
Varane is regarded as one of the best central defenders in world football and has become a real main stay in the Madrid side over the last few years, lifting the Champions League title four times during his spell at the Bernabeu.
And that has led to a lot of speculation that we could make a move to try and acquire his services in the coming windows, with Maurizio Sarri desperate to improve the back-line with a big named signing or two that could replace the likes of David Luiz or Antonio Rudiger.
And according to reports on the Daily Mail website, the French defender, 25, is said to be eyeing his options away from the Bernabeu despite the fact that Madrid shocked the world and re-hired Zidane over the past few weeks.
