The Stamford Bridge clubs move for the 23-year-old Spain worldwide is now expected to allow their current number one Thibaut Courtois to finally conclude his £35 million transfer to Real Madrid.

Hazard, however, did make his first Chelsea appearance since the World Cup to huge cheers, assuming the captain's armband from the bench and converting the winning penalty, while N'Golo Kante, Olivier Giroud and Gary Cahill were also introduced as second-half substitutes. I think I am here just to talk about this match. "Then, altogether, we'll decide about it". However, the keeper has remained in Belgium, possibly awaiting news of a possible move to Real Madrid.

"I don't see this problem in this moment", he insisted. We have only three days to prepare for the next match and it will be very important for us.

Courtois has entered the final 12 months of his contract at Chelsea and there has been no headway in him extending his stay at the club, according to the Guardian.

On the subject of Kepa, Sarri added with a smile: "If I don't know anything about Courtois, I don't know anything about Kepa".

On Monday night the couple addressed the controversy with host Chris Harrison during the " After the Final Rose " special. She also says she picked up and moved more than 500 miles away from her family at one point in her life.

But Sarri clearly does not want him to be exclusively a destroyer in the upcoming season, and the Italian's former Napoli general Jorginho was on hand to show Kante the ropes.

"I'm very happy I can work with all my players for the first time [on Wednesday]", said Sarri after Chelsea's 5-4 penalty shootout victory.

"He is potentially a great player".

"I think we have to work, but we started to work [together] two days ago". "He's very young and I think he can be a very useful player for us".
