Dennis Wise has warned Chelsea FC that they must keep hold of the likes of Eden Hazard if they want to be serious challengers for the Premier League title next season.

Hazard’s future has been a constant source of speculation this summer after Chelsea FC failed to secure qualification for next season’s Champions League.

The Blues ended up in fifth place in the Premier League table last season but managed to end the campaign on a positive note by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final back in May.

Hazard has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent weeks, while the futures of Thibaut Courtois and Willian also remain as sources of uncertainty ahead of next season.

However, former Chelsea FC star Wise has warned the Blues that they will have to make sure that they keep hold of their star players if they’re looking to be serious contenders for the title under new boss Maurizio Sarri next term.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Wise said: “There’s a lot of speculation over Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Willian.

“We’ve got to keep these players if we want to actually compete and be close to getting into the Champions League.”

Chelsea FC completed their second signing of the summer last week when they wrapped up a deal to bring veteran goalkeeper Rob Green to Stamford Bridge.
