Chelsea boss Sarri says he wants Cesc to stay

Maurizio Sarri suggested that Chelsea could decide Eden Hazard's future for him in January if the Belgian continues to delay talks over a new contract.

Maurizio Sarri says he is relishing the intense nature of the Premier League's winter schedule, but warns it is "very difficult" to play every three days, Sky Sports reports.

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for the past couple of years now.

Hazard is out of contract in 2020 but the Chelsea attacker is yet to re-sign at Stamford Bridge amid ongoing speculation regarding a move to Madrid.

"Sarri told me before the season started that playing as a number nine could be an option", Hazard told Chelsea's official club website. However, the Blues must consider sending him on loan to another club where he can get regular first-team football.

Hazard is not the only high-profile player at Chelsea with an uncertain future.

So Sarri's debut season has included positives. "I know very well that it's not easy, but I think we can do a new deal for both". Will I sit down with him? I want to speak to him only about the position on the pitch.

'The second problem was Odoi, it's not a serious problem but I don't think he will play in the next match'. That's why I find it very hard and anyway it's a story that very much comes out of the blue, no one at the club has any idea where this story has come from so I find it hard to understand from that perspective. "The problem is only this".

Asked if his recent comments about wanting to be a Chelsea FC legend mean that he will extend his stay, Hazard is quoted as saying by The Sun: "I am just focused on the pitch, I will see at the end of the season". "It's a rule so we have to respect it".
