Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea need to “respect” whatever decision Eden Hazard has made about his future, amid talk that he wants to sign for Real Madrid.
The Belgian has been repeatedly linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent times and with one year left on his contract he could depart Stamford Bridge over the summer, as reports have suggested the Spaniards are ready to make a £80 million offer for his services.
And the Belgian has recently revealed that he has already informed the club of his decision in the summer, and is just waiting to see what happens, something Sarri has admitted that all should accept.
Sarri knows he cannot afford to lose a man that has netted 26-times this season.
“We know for the fans [Hazard] is very important,” Sarri said on Sky Sports.
“We know Eden has played here in Chelsea for seven seasons; he tried in every match to do his best and now it is time to respect his decision. I hope he will remain with us.”
Meanwhile, Christian Pulisic has admitted that he cannot wait to play alongside N’Golo Kante next season.
There has been some talk that he could be the idea replacement for Eden Hazard, who is all set to leave the club and sign for Spanish giants Real Madrid, especially since he has already told the club his decision about whether or not he is staying or going.
And Pulisic has admitted that he is super excited about making the move and stated that he cannot ait to play alongside Frenchman Kante, who is considered to be the best holding midfielder in world football.
‘There’s so many good players here. I’m really excited to play with N’Golo Kante,’ said Pulisic
‘I’m excited to meet him, I love him as a player. The backline too, Luiz, Rudiger and those guys.
‘It feels amazing I’m super excited. I can’t wait.’
