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?
