Coutinho ‘to replace outgoing Hazard’ at Chelsea and more



The Belgian winger, who had his best season yet in a Chelsea shirt, has been heavily linked with Real Madrid for the past few months.

"I'm excited to play alongside N'Golo Kante, I think he's a fantastic player and I can't wait to meet him".

While Sarriball hasn't been as effective as it was in Serie A, the Italian manager has guided the Blues to a European final where the London club will face off against domestic rivals Arsenal in the Europa League final.

The 28-year-old also admitted he had wanted his future resolved earlier to avoid it being the season-long saga it has become.

Hazard played the final 21 minutes at the King Power Stadium as Chelsea finished third in the Premier League, 26 points behind champions Manchester City.

The Brazilian is a player who excelled in the Premier League for Liverpool, becoming their talisman in the five years he spent on Merseyside. "I'll do whatever I can to help the team win games".

Liverpool fans watched the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Leicester City at the Etihad hoping for City to drop points.

When asked how the Blues can improve next season, he said: "I think if they can keep the same philosophy as this season, keep playing football like we tried to do it this season, but in a better way - that's it".

Hazard racked up 16 goals and 15 assists in the Premier League this season and would set the La Liga giants back at least £86million (€100million).

'I have made my decision but it is not just about me.

"I hope he will stay".

Sarri expressed his desires to see the attacker extend his stay at the club, but insisted that he will also respect the player's decision should he decide to leave this summer.

The Belgium global has spent the last seven years of his career in west London, establishing himself as one of Europe's finest players since his £32 million ($42m) move from Lille.
