Chelsea told defender can leave, Luiz makes Hudson-odoi-Hazard claim, Eden deserves Madrid move, Sarri
Here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news from us guys.
Chelsea have been put on red alert after Bayern Munich told Jerome Boateng he can leave this summer.
Maurizio Sarri knows he needs to add some quality to the back-lines as his defence has simply not been good enough this season and has been eyeing up a bargain deal for Boateng, as the centre-back is not first-choice under Niko Kovac.[the_ad id=”164″]
Now the Italian boss has been handed a real boost in their chase to land Boateng after Bayern president Uli Hoeness suggested the German may have already played his final game for the club.
Speaking to BR, Hoeness stated: “I would recommend him as a friend to leave the club.
“He needs a new challenge. Recently he has seemed out of place.”
David Luiz has told fans Callum Hudson-Odoi could be the man to replace the departing Eden Hazard.
Hazard has admitted that the Europa League final could be his last game at the club, as he looks set to head to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
However, despite the fact he has netted an impressive 28-goals this season, Luiz is not too concerned about Hazard’s departure, claiming his side have a number of players who can fill his boots, specifically 18-year-old Hudson-Odoi.
‘That’s either Messi or Ronaldo [who can replace Hazard],’ Luiz said on the Sky Sports website.
‘If he goes I just wish him all the best. He is a fantastic player, friend and guy.
‘I think we have many, many talents within the club who can replace him. ‘Callum [Hudson-Odoi] is great. Callum has known this club since he was young and he has the talents to one day try to be like Eden.
‘It didn’t start so well because of the injury but it is time for him to improve in other sides [of his game].’[the_ad id=”164″]
Frank Sinclair has admitted Eden Hazard deserves a move to Real Madrid after we beat Arsenal in the Europa League.
Olivier Giroud headed in the opener against his former side in the 49th minute before Pedro swept in from Hazard’s cross on the hour mark, and then Hazard added a third from the penalty spot and then netted the fourth in the 72nd minute.
And despite many fans hoped that he would commit his long-term future to the club, Sinclair has come out and claimed that the Belgian fully deserves his move to Madrid.
“Hazard waved goodbye to the crowd and hugged a few players as he was going off,” said Sinclair on Sky Sports news.
“Could that be the last time we see Hazard in a Chelsea shirt? I think we’ll know the outcome of that very soon.
“To finish off with two goals is surely fitting for how he has performed for Chelsea over the last seven years.
“It’s a big one. The decision is Hazard’s and everyone at Chelsea will respect the decision as well. I think he has earned the right to go and play for one of the European giants after what he has done at Chelsea over the last seven years.
“For me, he has been the best player at Chelsea for the last seven years. I think he has got himself up there amongst Europe’s best – he’s in the same breath as your Ronaldos and Messis.
“It looks like he will go to Real Madrid and I think he deserves a move at this time in his career. Good luck to him.”
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he expected Eden Hazard to leave the club and sign for Real Madrid.
There has been so much speculation in the media over the past few months about the possible destination of Hazard, as many fans had hoped that he could be persuaded to ignore a possible move to Madrid and sign a new contract with the club.
And after Hazard dropped a massive hint that he is leaving after his impressive two-goal performance against Arsenal in the Europa League, Sarri has now come out and admitted that he expected Hazard to leave the club months ago.
“As you know he’s a wonderful player but you have to spend 2-3 months to understand him as a man,” said Sarri on BT Sport.
“When you’re able to understand him as a man he’s a wonderful man.
“I knew that Eden wanted to leave, of course, but as I say in every press conference I want to respect his decision. Now I have to speak to my club.”
