Eden Hazard 'reaches verbal agreement' to join European giants

Hazard, part of the Belgium team who finished third at the World Cup, has been linked with European champions Real Madrid and hinted last week he would like to move to the Spanish capital.

The Brazil worldwide remains on holiday after Brazil's quarter-final exit from the World Cup and Sarri admitted in his first press conference for the club that he will wait to speak to players in person before deciding their futures.

Catalonian newspaper Sport claim that with Eden Hazard open to a move to Real Madrid, Chelsea have been forced into identifying replacements and Nabil Fekir is one of their preferred targets. The report further goes on to suggest that Los Blancos consider the Spaniard to be expendable and are willing to include him in a player-plus-cash deal.

The FIFA World Cup 2018 Golden glove victor has his heart set on a move to Madrid to play between the sticks of the Real Madrid team, and has come to an agreement with the Spanish side which will see him make the switch to La Liga in the summer, as report Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws.

While Bakayoko struggled for us last time around, he was not the only underperforming player.

He revealed that he hopes to bring something new to the club by imposing his style on the pitch rather than trying to make wholesale changes to the club's philosophy: "I do not want to change anything in the club's philosophy, but I want to bring mine on the pitch".

"But a telephone call without looking them in the eye will not give me any certainty".

'I want to meet them face-to-face and talk to them and see what the best thing to do would be for everybody.

"Our task as managers is growing players that we have", he added.

The Costa Rica global saw off the near-signing of David de Gea from Manchester United and went on to play a key role in their incredible run of three straight Champions League titles.

Dembele at Chelsea could be an exciting prospect for Blues fans ahead of the new season, and could very well be a player that softens the blow of losing a player of the calibre of Eden Hazard.

Chelsea are beginning life under head coach Maurizio Sarri, who was unveiled on Wednesday after replacing the sacked Antonio Conte.

Having made his debut for Milan as a 16-year-old in 2015, Gianluigi Donnarumma soon established himself as first-choice at the club and the latest in a long line of Italian goalkeeping talent.
