- Maurizio Sarri is ready to stop Eden Hazard and Courtois from leaving Chelsea this summer
- The two players are expected to return to training on Friday, August 3, and Sarri will have discussion with them
- Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have both been linked with summer move to Real Madrid
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is ready to stand at the exit doors to prevent goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and winger Eden Hazard from leaving Stamford Bridge.
These two players have been linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, but the Blues according to the report by Dailymail, are not ready to do business with Los Blancos' chiefs.
Real Madrid want Belgian goalie Thibaut Courtois to replace current number one Keylor Navas while Eden Hazard on the other hand has been tipped as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Hazard and Courtois are expected to report to Chelsea’s Cobham training ground on Friday, August 3, after helping Belgium finish third at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Sarri has insisted since arriving at Chelsea that he would only speak to Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois face to face so as for him to convince them to stay.
Thibaut Courtois is entering the last phase of his contract at Stamford Bridge and the Blues are on the verge of losing him for free next summer if they fail to sell him.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois reportedly told the Blues' chiefs that he will not sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge and will leave on a free transfer next summer.
The Blues have been trying to keep their number one goalie this summer, and with this latest development, they will have to sell him in the next nine days or lose him for free when his contract ends next season.
