I want to keep Hazard, says Sarri

Spanish media have linked Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois with Real Madrid and although Sarri wants to keep the duo at Stamford Bridge, the former banker is happy for the club's hierarchy to handle transfer business.

As a player, Zola helped the club win two FA Cups, one Uefa Cup Winners' Cup, one Uefa Super Cup and one League Cup between 1996-2003. I would like to meet these players face to face and talk to them and understand what will be best for everyone.

Belgian stars Hazard and Courtois are both being chased by Real Madrid and have each dropped hints that they could be ready for a move this summer, while England defender Cahill is also unsettled after losing his place at the end of last season. "I hope the quality of the players will allow me to have the results".

"I know it will be very hard and here we have the strongest coaches in the world and the strongest players in the world".

We would always like to keep the strongest players, this is what any managers wants to do.

He also compared Hazard with Napoli attacker Dries Mertens, who became one of the Partenopei's most prolific goal-scorers under Sarri's guidance during the last three years.

In his first news conference as Blues head coach, Sarri suggested the difference in styles would mean a period of adjustment for the players.

And Zola, 52, fuelled that speculation by cutting short his work with African sports broadcaster SuperSport during the World Cup and revealing he was returning to London.

"It has been very fruitful for him, changes are afoot at Chelsea, Sarri is a very good coach and plays attacking football".

Hazard told reporters: "After six wonderful years at Chelsea it might be time to discover something different. They must not be changed". "I hope I will improve Hazard too but this is hard".

"This is a post-World Cup time", said Sarri. "Then we will have to see how the transfer market will go over the next few days".

He added: "Our owner is an extremely reserved person, so I don't want to start a work relationship with him by speaking about private things".
