Maurizio Sarri says he is “not worried” about the possibility of Eden Hazard leaving Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
It is no secret that Hazard is keen on a move to Madrid at the end of the season and all indications suggest that Spaniards are ready to step up their chase and finally land the Belgian superstar for a fee close to the £100 million mark.

And after the arrival of Zinedine Zidane as boss of the Spaniards, many have come to the conclusion that Hazard is now desperate to complete a move to La Liga and work with the French legend.
However, Sarri has admitted that he is not worried about the possibility of losing his star player at the end of the season, telling Sky Sports news: “You have to ask to Hazard (about Zidane) I think.
“I don’t know at the moment. I didn’t speak with Eden about Zidane.
“I am not worried because you know my opinion. I want only in my team players who want to play for Chelsea, so I can’t be worried.”
Can we convince Hazard to stay put and fulfil his dreams at Stamford Bridge?
If Hazard wants to leave then he can leave, it is as simple as that as Sarri is right and there is no point in having players in the side that really want to play elsewhere.
Eden may be the biggest and most creative player at the club, but we have shown in the past that big players can be replaced and we will find someone that can fulfil his boots.
We have Callum Hudson-Odoi at the club and he is showing great promise while the exciting Christian Pulisic is coming at the end of the season, so if Hazard leaves then we should be ok.
