Real Madrid reserve Ronaldo’s No. 7 shirt for Chelsea ace Eden Hazard

Real Madrid reserve Ronaldo’s No. 7 shirt for Chelsea ace Eden Hazard

Hazard meanwhile is now on holiday following his exploits at the World Cup, where he helped lead Belgium to a third-place finish.

After an impressive Soccer World Cup campaign with Belgium, the 27-year-old's future at Stamford Bridge remains uncertain ahead of the new season.

Chelsea, however, value Hazard at a minimum of £200m and remain hopeful of convincing him to sign a new contract with the club, where he has two-years remaining on his current deal.

And the Mail on Sunday went a step further, declaring that Hazard is not for sale and that Chelsea are confident he will not demand a move to Real.

'Clearly, the players you are referring to are very high-level players and I would like to keep them, ' Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said on Wednesday.

"I think he's our best player", Fabregas said.

He's a player that we all love to play with, especially me. He is one of the most sought after players in Europe after he scored 22 goals in all competitions for Lyon.

Chelsea would never sell to a direct Premier League rival and the Spanish giants are the only clubs that represent a real step up in quality. He knows that. I won't lie, I speak to him often. I hope we can have a successful season, with new silverware, too.

"I don't think they can get that money from Real Madrid".

Martinez believes he has the quality to play for the very best teams in world football.

Thibaut Courtois recently suggested that The Blues would likely have to improve their wage offer if they want him to stay as his performances in the 2018 World Cup have increased his value. "It's an exciting time, we start from zero and want to win things".

"I don't want to talk about the transfer market and I'm not that interested in it".
