Maurizio Sarri has told Chelsea FC fans that he will see Eden Hazard for the first time when the Belgian reports back for pre-season training this weekend.

The Belgian attacker’s future at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation this summer, with the 27-year-old having been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid recently.

Hazard is currently enjoying the final few days of his extended summer holiday after helping Belgium to finish in third place at the World Cup in Russia.

The 27-year-old currently has two years left to run on his current contract, and he is due to report back to Cobham to begin pre-season training alongside team-mate Thibaut Courtois this weekend.

And Chelsea FC boss Sarri says that he has no fresh updates about the pair’s futures as they prepare to return to the club.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday night, Sarri said: “I will see them [Hazard and Courtois] on Saturday for the first time, so I don’t know the situation in this moment.

“There is no news. We are talking about top players, and every club wants to keep their top players. We are trying to do it.”

Chelsea FC will be looking to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title next season as they look to try and win the trophy under Sarri next term.

The Blues ended up in fifth place and as FA Cup winners under Antonio Conte last term.
