Eden Hazard's plan to leave for Real Madrid causes panic in Chelsea

Chelsea's confidence of keeping Hazard has been receding for months, with the Belgium worldwide having made no attempt to hide his attraction to Madrid while spurning Chelsea's attempts to reopen talks over a contract extension that would make him the highest-paid player in their history.

Chelsea take a commanding 3-0 lead into Thursday's second leg in Kiev, but Sarri refused to guarantee that unsettled academy prospect Callum Hudson-Odoi - who came on as a substitute to score his team's third goal at Stamford Bridge - will be picked to start.

The other player that Zidane wants at Real Madrid is Liverpool's, Sadio Mane. Who better than Kylian Mbappe?

"If I'm in his head, the first thing I'd do is reconsider the trousers I was wearing for the press conference yesterday", Moreno said.

"Eden Hazard, he had his chance".

"It didn't quite work out, he didn't push hard enough, he's stayed at Chelsea. No".

"And the reason I can say no to Eden Hazard is because I've got this". Obviously, we have many players of quality in our team but he is on another level and is one of the best in the world.

"If I'm Real Madrid I want to attract attention, I want to attract marketing, I want to cover that [Cristiano] Ronaldo hole".

Moreno can not see Zidane attempting to sign Mbappe's team-mate Neymar.

"I don't know whether he leaves Spurs or not but if I was in Zidane's head, this is what I would go after".

Eriksen's agent Martin Schoots recently spoke to Danish media outlet Ekstra Bladet but wouldn't comment on his client's future, insisting that the player's only concern is what's happening out on the pitch: "Christian's only focusing on the football, he said but would be drawn on the 27-year-old's future: "I don't want to add to the speculation around Christian's contract and football future".
