Onda Cero: Barcelona offer Dembele and money to sign Eden Hazard

It is Eden Hazard who remains their most prized asset though and new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri faces a battle to hold on to Hazard, who stated that he may be tempted by a move away.

Like his Belgium and Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard, Courtois has made it clear that Real Madrid is his preferred destination.

Sarri continued: "For me this is a hard challenge, but a fascinating one".

It was Hazard who came out and said after the World Cup that he wants to move from Stamford Bridge.

"I can not name any names, because I don't know who these people are", he said.

A third put: "Don't let this be the last time we see Hazard in a Chelsea kit". "I don't want to talk about it and not interested in it". He also shared his plans for the Belgian in the coming week.

Sarri said he was one of the few managers who was "bored" by the transfer market and that his aim was to inject "fun" into his squad.

"This is a hard challenge but a fascinating one", he said.

"I know it will be very hard and here we have the strongest clubs and players in the world". It's the second time in his career the 59-year-old has replaced an outgoing Antonio Conte - and first time round it wasn't a successful experience. "I hope Hazard will improve with me but it will be hard".

Last season, Chelsea finished 30 points behind champions Manchester City, managed by Sarri's friend Pep Guardiola. "They must not be changed".

Gianfranco Zola will join Chelsea as an assistant first-team coach to Maurizio Sarri, the Premier League club have announced.

Zola, 52, played for the Londoners from 1996 until 2003, scoring 80 goals, including the victor in the 1998 European Cup Winners Cup final.

As FA Cup winners they play champions Manchester City in the Community Shield before their first Premier League match against Huddersfield Town on August 11.

"For me it is an incredible thing".

"Dries has improved with me but he started at a lower level".
