Maurizio Sarri names the weakest area of the team

If reports are to be believed then Real Madrid has tabled a bid in excess of 200 million pounds to secure the services of Eden Hazard who starred for Belgium in the recently concluded FIFA World Cup. I hope I will show this when I am working here and living here.

"I hope you will have the chance to get to know you better and forget about this very quickly".

The Italian replaces compatriot Antonio Conte, who was sacked last week having failed to retain the Premier League title and guiding the Blues to a fifth-placed finish.

Courtois has been at Stamford Bridge since 2011. "Many players still have to come back from the World Cup".

He also compared Hazard with Napoli attacker Dries Mertens, who became one of the Partenopei's most prolific goal-scorers under Sarri's guidance during the last three years. "I don't want to talk about the transfer market and I'm not that interested in it".

The translator initially said Sarri had felt his centre-halves were the weakest area, though Chelsea have since clarified that his comments were mistranslated and he meant central midfield.

'Antonio [Conte] reached incredible results here, he is an extraordinary manager and clearly I play in a slightly different way so it will take some time. "He is an extraordinary manager", he added.

Arsenal will need the full amount they paid for him if Chelsea want to sign him because he is their first choice goalkeeper at the moment even though they have a new manager.

"It could be the best time [for Hazard] to try something different".

"A telephone call without looking them in the eyes will not give me any certainty".

"My goal is to have fun and be competitive in all the competitions until the end", Sarri told a news conference on Wednesday. I hope that I will manage to improve him, this is hard because he has reached a very high level. "I would be very surprised if Chelsea didn't have big offers for him right now", Martinez was quoted as saying.
