Maurizio Sarri has urged Chelsea to keep hold of two players at any cost

Both the players have been linked with summer exit

Chelsea are finally set to appoint Maurizio Sarri as their new manager after they have been in talks with Napoli for a long time. He will replace Antonio Conte, who has been heavily linked with a summer exit.

It is believed that the Italian side’s midfielder Jorginho will follow him to the Stamford Bridge after snubbing the chance to join Manchester City. The Blues are set to pay a combined fee of €58 million plus €7 million in add ons for the pair.

With the Italian set to be appointed, the club are expected to kick start their transfer window after falling behind other Premier League clubs. But he wants to sort out current players situation before moving on to other targets.

Sarri has told Roman Abramovich that he considers Eden Hazard and Willian as two untouchable players at Chelsea, according to Metro. Both of them are key members of the squad but have been linked with summer exit.

Hazard joined the English side from Lille in the summer of 2012 and is one of the club’s undisputed stars. He is considered one of the best players in the world after performing at the highest level over the past few seasons.

Despite Blue’s struggle last season, the Belgian International was a regular for them and managed to score 17 goals in all competitions. He was very influential against Manchester United in the final of the FA Cup as he scored the winner in the 1-0 win, helping the team to grab their 8th FA Cup title.

He has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for a long time and with Cristiano Ronaldo’s surprise summer exit, the Spanish giants could be soon in the market for his replacement.

Willian joined the Premier League giants from Anzhi Makhachkala for a reported fee of £30 million in 2013. The Winger has been one of the most constant players for them in the last three years, scoring 44 goals in 236 for the club since joining them.

The Brazilian was a crucial player for them in both their Premier League winning campaign, 2014/2015 and 2016/2017. He was their stand out player in the 2015/2016 campaign, when the club under performed and finished outside the top 4.

But the Brazil International was frustrated with the lack of regular football last term and admitted to finding life on the bench difficult. He has been heavily linked with a summer exit in recent weeks, with Manchester United and Barcelona showing interest in him.

But with Sarri keen to keep the players beyond this summer it will be a huge boost for the London club, whose priority is to return to the Champions League and compete for major silverware.

  1. Sari correct about Willian but not about Hazard. Hazard clearly wants away so, sell sell sell Now while somebody is willing to pay decent money for him. KEEP CONTE. Great manager. Have the board learned nothing about bringing in high profile disappointments Scolari etc etc Conte is a good manager. Let him manage
