Maurizio Sarri has insisted that he is confident of being able to keep Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Willian at Chelsea FC this summer.

The trio’s futures have been constant sources of speculation this summer amid suggestions that they want to quit Stamford Bridge ahead of the new campaign.

The most pressing situation is that of Courtois, whose current contract with the west London club is set to expire at the end of next season, and if he doesn’t sign a new deal, the Blues are not likely to want to lose him for nothing next year.

Hazard has also been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid, while Willian is believed to be unsettled and has been touted as a target for Manchester United.

However, despite the trio still being on their summer holidays following their involvement in the World Cup, Sarri seems to be confident of keeping hold of them.

Speaking at a news conference after Chelsea FC’s 1-0 win over Perth in pre-season, Sarri said: “It’s a pleasure to have Courtois, to have Willian, to have Hazard, but it (their futures) doesn’t depend on me, not only on me.

“So, we have to wait. I’m confident.”

Chelsea FC made their first signing of the summer earlier this month when they tied up a deal to sign Jorginho from Napoli following Sarri’s appointment.

The west London club finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup last term.
