GETTYMaurizio Sarri took charge of his first training session yesterday at Cobham

The 2018 world Cup in the Belgian Eden hazard has played five matches in which he scored two goals and made two assists.

The Belgian global fuelled speculation of his move after the World Cup, confirming he would be considering his future at Stamford Bridge.

Goalkeeper Courtois has just a year remaining on his Chelsea contract, while forward Hazard has an additional 12 months.

Hazard has been heavily courted by the La Liga giants for some time and following the Belgian's outstanding displays in Russian Federation, talk of a mega-move towards the Spanish capital has only intensified.

"It's a way of football that I believe in, that I really like, that I grew up in this system", Cesc Fabregas said, adding, "For the type of player like myself, we can take a lot of advantage".

The La Liga giants are ready to make Hazard the second most expensive player in history with a £170m bid for the Belgian in the next week.

Do you think Hazard will eventually end up at Real in this transfer window?

"I won't lie, I speak to him often", Fabregas told a press conference. "I would love us to start well and we are all very excited to start this new adventure".

Chelsea were keen on landing the 29-year-old.

Unless we change our stance drastically, we wouldn't expect him to leave.

When asked about the status of the club retaining their key players, Sarri was diplomatic in his answer.

"I don't think they can get that money from Real Madrid". He spoke of his disinterest in the transfer market and said he would be content to coach the players already at his disposal. Chelsea revealed their new home strip in May, using it in their final game of the 2017-18 season, a 3-0 defeat to Newcastle which saw them miss out on a Champions League spot.

The Blues suffered from the Premier League title curse last season after winning the trophy under ex-manager Antonio Conte back in 2016/17.
