Chelsea transfer news: Maurizio Sarri makes Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois revelation

CHELSEA boss Maurizio Sarri admits he’s still in the dark over Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois’ futures.

The Belgium duo are back at Chelsea this weekend and will meet the Italian after links with moves away.

Both players hinted at potential exits during the World Cup and Real Madrid are believed to be keen on them.

Courtois is the more likely to depart with just one year left on his contract but the Blues are confident Hazard will stay and are preparing to offer him a new deal.

But Sarri is yet to speak to them and hopes he can convince them both to stay.

“I will see them on Saturday for the first time – I don’t know the situation,” said Sarri.

“We are talking about top players. Every club wants to keep their top players and we are trying to do it.”

Chelsea have so far refused to sell Courtois to Real Madrid until they can complete a deal for a replacement.

Kasper Schmeichel and Jack Butland are two of the top targets but will not be easy to sign in the final week of the transfer window.

But Madrid are determined to make Courtois their new No 1.

Hazard was thought to be the top target to replace Cristiano Ronaldo but interest seems to have cooled.

Sarri also has to deal with the Willian situation after he failed to report for training last week.

Sarri will hold talks with the Brazil ace to find out his situation after links to Manchester United.

“I want to speak to him before I answer these questions. I want to speak to him,” he said.

“I am not happy about this situation but before I answer, I would like to speak to him.”

And asked whether he will stay at the club he said: “I don’t know the situation in this moment. There is no news.”
