Doubts over Hazard clouding Chelsea preparation

Doubts over Hazard clouding Chelsea preparation


Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insists he won't be distracted from trying to win the Europa League final against Arsenal on Wednesday, even though the Italian is the favourite to be the next Juventus manager.

Sarri steered the Blues to a third-place finish in the Premier League, but his future is the subject of speculation.

The Italian will discuss his future with the Chelsea board after the final but it would be no surprise to see him walk away. He is unpopular with fans, many of whom would love to see club legend Frank Lampard installed as his replacement.

It's not only Sarri who could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge - there are reports that Real Madrid have agreed a fee for Eden Hazard. The Belgian, whose future has long been up in the air, has said that his decision has been made (although he's yet to reveal it).

Hazard has been at Chelsea since 2012, during which time he's won two Premier League titles and gained a reputation as one of the best players in the world. He's said it was his childhood dream to play for Madrid and Baku is likely to be his final appearance in a Chelsea shirt.
