Chelsea

Hazard can go says Sarri

30th January 2019, 03:56 by Michael Holland

Maurizio Sarri has hinted Eden Hazard can leave as his situation is different to that of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Chelsea boss has insisted that Hudson-Odoi will not be allowed to join Bayern Munich over the next couple days and all offers will be knocked back.

Being just 18, Sarri insists that Stamford Bridge is the best place for him to develop, while Hazard is older and wiser and may want a fresh challenge.

Hazard's contract also expires in 18 months' time, with the Belgium playmaker's future likely to be a major summer topic.

The 28-year-old has previously spoken of his daily quandary over whether to commit to Chelsea or seek a "dream" move to Real Madrid.

Sarri repeated his oft-voiced wish for Hazard to stay, but says the situation contrasts with Hudson-Odoi's.

The former Napoli boss said: "The situation of Eden is different. Eden is 28. If he wants to go, I think he has to go. Of course, I hope the opposite. I hope he wants to stay here.

"He has the potential to be the best player in Europe at the moment. Sometimes he's happy with something less. It's my job to improve him and put him in a position to do his best."
