Sarri’s response to Hazard saying he has made decision on his future

Sarri’s response to Hazard saying he has made decision on his future

Managers like [Jose] Mourinho, [Antonio] Conte, now with Sarri want me to score 40, 50 goals a season but can I do that?

Higuain hit the ground running with two goals on his Premier League debut in Chelsea's 5-0 thrashing of Huddersfield, but Sarri has the bigger picture in mind for the Argentine forward ahead of this weekend's trip to champions Manchester City, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 3.30pm on Sunday.

"I'm not sure. Maybe they think I can, but I know myself and I don't think I can".

Kante has arguably been the most influential signing made by Chelsea since Eden Hazard, having arrived from Leicester City a Premier League victor in the summer of 2016.

"In the moment he is really very determined", Sarri said.

The signing of Higuain - an expensive recruit in his 30s - is contrary to Chelsea's usual transfer policy and Sarri has previously acknowledged the need for the striker to swiftly make an impact. "In my first season in Naples, he arrived later [due to the Copa America]".

Wright is a nice wing to add, and extra picks are never bad, but a second-rounder from the Raptors isn't exactly that exciting. Valanciunas is in a similar spot with his contract and has a player option for next year that's just north of $17.6 million .

Real have been repeatedly linked with Hazard and he has made no secret of his desire to play for the Spanish club. "But Higuain is a fantastic striker".

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard hints that he may be tempted into remaining at Stamford Bridge by revealing that he likes to play football in the same way as Maurizio Sarri.

Discussing 60-year-old Sarri, Hazard added: 'I like this kind of football.

"I speak every day with Eden, but I speak with Eden about his position on the pitch".

"He needs confidence first of all". He needs confidence and a good relationship with the coach.

"Also when you see the Belgium squad we have a lot, of course, Belgian players but some from Congo like (Romelu) Lukaku, (Michy) Batshuayi and (Christian) Benteke".
