Sarri says Hazard is considering an offer from Chelsea, rumoured to be worth up to £350,000 per week.
Sarri on Hazard – “The club is available to sign a new contracti immediately but it’s up to him if he wants to renew or not.” “I want Eden here, of course, but I want him here if he wants to stay here…”
Sarri – “I know very well that there are discussions between the club and the manager of Eden every week, I think.” “So if there is something new, the club will call me immediately.”
Hazard is currently on £200,000-a-week and has been replaced as the club’s highest paid player by N’Golo Kante, who has recently agreed a pay-rise up to £290,000-a-week.
It is understood that preliminary talks have taken place and Chelsea remain optimistic he will stay in west London.
They are prepared to give Hazard a five-year deal, with a salary in excess of £300,000-a-week to convince him.
