The speculation surrounding Hazard’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge could be set to gather pace in the coming weeks and months as the summer window draws nearer.
Hazard has long been linked with a possible move to Real Madrid and it remains to be seen whether the Spanish giants will make an official attempt to try and sign the Belgian this summer.
Courtois’ future at Stamford Bridge has also been a source of uncertainty of late, with the goalkeeper’s current contract at the club set to expire at the end of next season.
However, former Chelsea FC defender Gallas believes that Chelsea FC must “accept” that some of their best players will always be linked with moves away from the club.
And Gallas feels that the Blues would be able to find adequate replacements for both players should they leave the club this summer.
Speaking in an interview with Goal, Gallas said: “To be honest, you have got so many great players in the world that if Hazard or Courtois has to leave, you can find a good goalkeeper to replace Courtois.
“You have good wingers who can replace Eden Hazard. That’s the job of the scouts to find the right players.
“Sometimes you have to accept your best players have to leave or want to leave. Maybe because they want to play in a different league. Maybe because they have already won the FA Cup, Premier League and Carabao Cup.
“I don’t think they have won the Champions League with Chelsea, so maybe that’s why they want to leave and go to another club. You have to ask the question which team they supported when they were kids.
“So many kids will say: ‘I used to support Real Madrid’ or ‘I used to support Barcelona’. So maybe you have to ask that question to Eden Hazard? His dream was to go and play for Real Madrid and maybe you have to accept it.
“You have to accept it. You don’t have to be upset because he has played for Chelsea for many years. All the time he was playing with that blue shirt and giving everything for that club.”
Chelsea FC booked their place in the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday thanks to a 2-1 extra-time win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
