Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has told Blues fans that Eden Hazard has not told him that he wants to leave for Real Madrid at the end of the current season.

Hazard has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the course of the season if you are a Chelsea fan, as there has been constant speculation that he wants to pack his bags and head for the dizzy heights of La Liga , to work under his footballing idol Zinedine Zidane.

It is no secret that Madrid need a revamp at the end of the season after a disappointing campaign, and Zidane is expected to spend around £400 million on acquiring some of the best players in world football right now, with a £100 million of that going towards the signing of Hazard.

But when asked if Hazard has told him he wants to leave, Sarri replied: ‘No, no. Not at the moment. ‘He told me he has to decide [not] anything else.’

He added: ‘I am sure the club doesn’t want to sell him, But of course, we all have to respect his decision, I think.

‘He is in the last season of his contract. If he wants to have another experience we have to respect it.

‘But we will try of course to convince him, but it’s not easy.’
