Here’s how Chelsea can replace Eden Hazard despite a transfer ban

Eden Hazard will join Real Madrid for around €100 million (£86 million) after the Europa League final, according to L'Equipe.

Chelsea FC boss Maurizio Sarri has said that he is hopeful that Eden Hazard will remain with the club and will respect any decision made by the Belgium global. I'm still waiting, like the fans are waiting'.

"When you are on the pitch, you try to be focused on the pitch with the ball".

"I've been waiting a long time for this and playing in the Premier League has been one of my biggest dreams". It's that simple. We need to win games in football.

Chelsea's final day goalless draw at Leicester saw Sarri's side finish the season in third, though the club were a huge 26 points behind champions Man City.

Barcelona's hierarchy are bracing themselves for interest from Chelsea in Philippe Coutinho as the Blues go in search of a replacement for Eden Hazard.

The Belgium maestro has been at Chelsea since 2012 but his days are numbered.

The Blues are also gearing up for the Europa Cup final against English rivals Arsenal but all these are not enticing enough for Hazard to make him stay.

After bidding farewell to his club, Hazard will be involved in national team duties with Euro qualifiers against Kazakstan and Scotland in June.

Maurizio Sarri said in December that it was time to resolve Hazard's future, and the Belgian agreed that he would have preferred clarity a little earlier in the season.

Sarri expressed his desires to see the attacker extend his stay at the club, but insisted that he will also respect the player's decision should he decide to leave this summer.

"I think coming here will be a smooth transition for me, already knowing the language and things like that", he said. I don't know. I can say only the club asked me to get into the Champions League and we reached the target - the Champions League.

"Yes, it is one of my best [seasons] in terms of goals contribution, of course".
