Sarri: Chelsea must respect Hazard decision in Real Madrid saga


Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said he does not want to sign a midfield alternative to Jorginho but would like to make Mateo Kovacic's loan from Real Madrid permanent.

The rumoured Madrid target opened the scoring via a sensational solo run before sealing the points in the closing stages as Chelsea moved up to third in the table.

After yet another magical display from Hazard at Stamford Bridge, Sarri was asked about the rumours linking Chelsea's star man with a move to the Bernabeu.

"I think we played well".

"Eden played a wonderful match [against West Ham United]". Also, because it's impossible to find another Hazard.

March 30 was the original date set by the enacting of Article 50 for the exit of Britain from the European Union. The Home Office said the removal of the words "European Union" was part of a two-stage redesign process.

Talks over a contract extension which would make him Chelsea's highest-paid player ever have stalled, and, with just a year left on his deal, Chelsea could be forced into selling but Higuain hopes Hazard will remain at the club.

The West Ham starlet has been linked with some of the Premier League's giants after making a huge impression since graduating into the first team last season.

Having failed to muster a single attack of note before the break, West Ham sparked into life in the second half and could have made Chelsea pay for their failure to kill the game off. "I'd very much like Kovacic to stay with us".

"If Eden wants another experience, it's very hard to keep him", he told Sky Sports.

The West Ham supporters sang "He's off to Madrid" during Monday's game, but Hazard refused to talk about his future when asked about the chants after the match.

Earlier this week two babies aged 8 months and 11 months who were too young to be vaccinated contracted the disease. In addition, immune globulin (Ig) treatment is effective within six days of exposure for high-risk individuals.

In case that is happening, Hazard will look to end his relationship with the Londoners on a good note, by finishing well with them this season.

"He came here with his own ideas of how to play and I think we've done quite well".

"I want to do as well as I can so I can be here for next season", Higuain said. "But this is the situation, so we have to adapt".

"Most players see that as the pinnacle, it's happened at both our clubs, United and Liverpool, and I agree it's sad in terms of not watching them week in, week out". Of course, he is not a defensive midfielder [at the moment] but, as you know, in that position I prefer a very technical player.
