Maurizio Sarri provides hugely worrying Eden Hazard transfer update after masterclass for Chelsea vs West Ham

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has made a hugely worrying claim about the future of Eden Hazard, suggesting the club are fighting a losing battle to prevent him sealing a transfer to Real Madrid.

Speaking after today’s win over West Ham, in which Hazard scored a world class solo goal as part of a match-winning brace, Sarri more or less admitted Chelsea may be forced to let their star player go this summer.

Speculation surrounding the Belgium international has been going on for some time now, with a combination of worrying reports emerging in the last couple of days.

The Sun claim Real Madrid are prepared to pay £100million to sign Hazard this summer, which the Telegraph claim is Chelsea’s asking price for the 28-year-old.

Sarri admits it’s looking difficult to persuade Hazard to stay, and also added to the negativity by suggesting there probably isn’t a player out there who can replace the former Lille star.
