Eden Hazard and Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri

Links with a move to Real Madrid for the Belgium worldwide have persisted, with the winger recently refusing to be drawn on whether he would commit long term to Chelsea and extend a contract that expires at the end of next season.

When it was put to him that Chelsea have little control over the situation as long as Hazard is reluctant to discuss a contract extension, Sarri replied: "I don't think so".

Madrid are long-time admirers of Hazard, and speculation linking the Belgian with a move to the Spanish capital has only intensified as his contract ticks down.

Moses is all glee for Hazard, after the dashing winger-cum-midfielder hit his 100th and 101st goals from 322 Cheslea appearances in a 2-1 win at Watford on Boxing Day. "Yes, I am a bit surprised [it has gone on this long]", Sarri admitted before adding, "but I don't know the past so I can't say anything". "I will see at the end of the season".

So Sarri's debut season has included positives.

His goals powered Leicester to their sensational title run in the 2015/16 season and although his form has tailed off slightly this campaign - he has managed just six goals thus far - he remains one of the deadliest attackers in England.

She added that she had been speaking with Chinese authorities, stressing that Canada has the utmost respect for the rule of law. The United States - which is locked in a trade war with Beijing - has accused her of violating sanctions on Iran.

Moses beamed with nostalgia: "It was unbelievable - I thought it was going to go to extra-time and then he took on three players and they thought he was going to cross the ball, and then he just let it go!"

"The second problem was Odoi, it's not a serious problem but I don't think he will play in the next match".

"I spoke with the club about this one month ago".

Luiz has been great under Sarri this season and the Brazilian is favoured in the defence alongside Antonio Rudiger.

"The deal is very hard for this reason [both players are over 30 years of age]".

Asked if he thinks Hazard has already made a decision, Merson said: "I would say yes".
