Sarri urges Hazard to stay at Chelsea and 'win everything'

The 27-year-old has already scored seven goals in eight Premier League games this season to lay down a marker in the early months of the season and transform Chelsea FC into title challengers.

But speaking in a news conference ahead of Chelsea's clash with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Sarri insisted that Hazard can achieve all of his personal ambitions without going anywhere.

It was put to Hazard on Belgium duty that every Ballon d'Or victor since 2008 has played in Spain, and he jokingly replied that he wants to join Madrid to put himself in position to be regarded as the world's best player. I don't want to lie today.

The Belgian has given another interview, this time to Sky Sports, where he admitted he is open to prolonging his stay at the Stamford Bridge club.

Maurizio Sarri will tell Eden Hazard he does not have to leave Chelsea to win everything in football including the Ballon d'Or.

"No problem at all".

"If I don't go to Spain it's not a problem". In the last three months I have seen him always very happy so I don't think so'.

"He's not only a great footballer but I think he's a wonderful lad".

"What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that's it".

Another player who has cast doubt upon his Chelsea future is Andreas Christensen, who said during the global break that he may seek to leave the club if his game-time does not increase. He can win the the Ballon d'Or here, because for example if Chelsea win the Champions League, and the Belgium national team can win the European Championships, he can win everything without playing in Spain.

"But I don't think they'd deny him the opportunity if he wanted to go to a giant".
