Sport News [Sport] Sarri rules out Hazard leaving Chelsea now Published 3 months ago on August 10, 2018 By Fresh 9ja Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri believes his squad is “complete”, with the arrivals of Kepa Arrizabalaga and Mateo Kovacic and the squad staying as it is presently. He said he does not expect Eden Hazard to leave the club before the European transfer deadline on Aug. 31. Chelsea broke the world record fee for a goalkeeper when they signed Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao for 80 million euros (about £71.65 million). They then secured a season-long loan deal for midfielder Kovacic from Real Madrid. Spanish media have reported Hazard as a transfer target for Real Madrid throughout the close season.

We cannot change important players now. “Hazard is with us. I think, definitely. Not a problem. I have spoken with him three or four times for everything. He never said something about the market. So, I think he’s very happy to stay here.” Arrizabalaga has the daunting task of replacing World Cup Golden Glove winner Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian had established himself as one of the finest goalkeepers in the English Premier League after arriving at Stamford Bridge in 2011.

So, we lost maybe one of the most important goalkeepers in the world. “But we bought a young goalkeeper, one of the most important among the young goalkeepers in Europe, so I’m really happy.
