Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has stated that Real Madrid target Eden Hazard can leave in the summer if he wants to.
The 28-year-old has been in the news in what has become a will he/won’t he situation.
So far the winger has 13 goals and 10 assists in 28 games so far and he is seen as a pivotal part of Sarri’s plans this season.
“Eden is 28. If he wants to go, I think he has to go,” Sarri said
“Of course, I hope the opposite. I hope he wants to stay here with us and improve. He has the potential to be the best player in Europe at the moment. Sometimes he’s happy with something less.
“It’s my job to improve him and put him in a position to do his best. Sometimes I have to say something in the pressroom on that. It’s normal. It’s my job.
“But I was really very happy with the last performance.”
The Blues are in 4th position ahead of their Premier League match tonight against Bournemouth.
Sarri will be hoping his charges bounce back after their defeat to Arsenal which then sees them level on points with the Gunners.
If they drop points tonight they will be in very real danger of losing out of the Champions League with both Arsenal and Manchester United hot on their heels.
