Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has admitted he hopes Eden Hazard will stay but is ready respect whatever decision the forward reaches on his future.
Hazard’s contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire at the end of next season and he has been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid.
Asked on Wednesday if the Europa League final in Baku could be Hazard’s last for the club, Sarri said: “I don’t know. As I said in every press conference, I want to respect his decision.
I hope that he will stay with us, but we need to be ready if he will decide something different. Also if I have spoken with him, I don’t want to say anything.”
On whether Hazard could make the grade at Madrid, Sarri added: “Hazard is good for every team, of course, but he’s really very good for us.”
