New Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri urged the club’s board to resolve star striker Eden Hazard’s future once and for all earlier today reports the Daily Mail.

The Italian is tired of the constant speculation surrounding the mercurial Belgian with Real Madrid constantly linked with a move for the 27-year-old. Despite the World Cup finals in Russia last summer, the Spanish giants were expected to make a double-swoop for Hazard and his compatriot Thibaut Courtois, 26. In the end, it was only the goalkeeper who forced a move to the Bernabeu.

This summer is expected to be no different. Hazard consistently denies agitating for a move away from the West London club but refuses to rule out a move to Real. On more than one occasion, he has spoken in the media of his dream of playing in the famous all-white kit.

Now Sarri wants the situation resolved. Speaking at his weekly press conference, the Italian said:

“I think it is time to decide. I have not the power to do this. I am the coach. I am not the president and not in charge of the market.

“I only speak to him about the position on the pitch. I think we have to solve the problem if we want to plan for the future. I think they need to start in this period.”

With the head coach seemingly losing patience is this the time for the Blues to cash-in?
