Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has given his views on the transfer speculations surrounding Eden Hazard. The Chelsea talisman has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid and might be on his way to the Spanish capital next summer. The return of Zinedine Zidane as the manager of the Galacticos and the fact that the Belgian skipper is yet to sign a new contract at the west London club has added fuel to the speculation.
Sarri said, “We need Hazard to be at the top for the end of the season. Now we can’t solve the problem, the market is closed. I want to respect is decision. I don’t know if he has decided or not.”
Chelsea have been struggling to find form in the Premier League as they look for Champions League qualification in the next term. Speaking about the current conundrum, the manager said, “I think in the last period it will be very hard for all teams. We can reach the top four if we are not able to win 8 matches in a row. No [points target]. We need to go match by match.”
