Maurizio Sarri has revealed he’s ‘sure’ that Eden Hazard will remain at Chelsea for this season.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard says he will not leave the club this month because they can’t sign a replacement.

Hazard, 27, hinted that his time at Chelsea could be coming to an end after the World Cup when he said he wanted to “discover something different,” with rumours of a move to Real Madrid circling.

But he has now pledged his commitment to Chelsea for the foreseeable future.

“Everybody knows what I have said after the World Cup. But I’m happy here,” he told RMC Sport after the 3-2 win over Arsenal. “A lot has been said. A lot of stupidity too. But at the moment I’m happy.

“I have two years left on my contract and we’ll see what happens. Leaving this year? I won’t go. The transfer market in England is closed. Clubs can still sell players, but not sign new ones anymore. It would be a bit strange that they would sell me now while they can’t sign a replacement.

“We could see today that fans love me. I’m fine here. We’ll see what happens in a year or two.”

Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in 2012, with his contract expiring in the summer of 2020.

The club have been in talks over a new contract worth a reported £300,000-a-week but the forward has yet to agree terms.
