While Hazard still has two years left on his contract, Chelsea are trying to tie him down to a new deal worth £300,000-a-week.

Maurizio Sarri has suggested he may recommend Thibaut Courtois is sold to Real Madrid if the goalkeeper reiterates in a face-to-face meeting with the head coach that he wants to leave Chelsea.

Chelsea appointed Sarri last month as the successor to Antonio Conte, who led the Blues to FA Cup glory by beating Mourinho's Manchester United in last season's final. "I want only players who play with a very high level of motivation".

The inspirational Belgian forward, who has been consistently linked with a move to Real Madrid, spoke to Sarri last week and asked for an extra day of holiday before returning. The 31-year old winger committed his future to Chelsea in hope to get better under new manager Sarri. "I think we can do very good things together".

"We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics [would be a good fit]", he added.


"I don't know him", Mourinho told beIN Sports, according to Football Italia.

English-born Ghanaian forward Callum Hudson-Odoi could have a breakthrough season with Chelsea following his electric performance in their pre-season games.

Courtois missed the Blues' 2-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Community Shield, as he is still on holiday following his Belgium exploits in the World Cup. "The match will be very hard for us", he said.

Speaking to the club's official website, Nigerian worldwide Moses said that his teammates are excited about adapting to Sarri's fresh style of play.

"We know that they are a very good team, but we will try to play our game". The player was due to return on Monday following his exploits with Brazil in this summer's World Cup.
