Fabregas begs Hazard to stay at Chelsea

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill is considering quitting Stamford Bridge as the club close in on a £44.2m deal for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani.

Sarri was giving his first press conference since taking over at the helm, and spoke to the media in both English and Italian.

Belgium internationals Hazard and Courtois, who are recovering having helped their country finish third at the World Cup, have been heavily linked with Real Madrid.

"But i want to clarify, I am much more a pitch manager than a general manager".

With one year left on his current contract, Courtois' transfer seems a lot more straightforward and Chelsea must sell or risk losing him for nothing. However, now it looks like Chelsea are finally going to lose Eden Hazard with rumors of every big European club after the forward.

"Everyone loves him - the fans, the club, the players, and we need him".

But the Frenchman who had to watch as his countrymen won the World Cup final against Croatia, hasn't been at his very best at the Camp Nou. "I would love us to start well and we are all very excited to start this new adventure".

"I speak to him often". So I hope to do the best. I don't want to talk about the transfer market and am not that interested in it.

The Premier League has rules about the number of homegrown players each club needs to include in their squad something that Sarri is aware of and will embrace.

I want to have this experience by myself, including mistakes.

'I think that I am one of few managers who is bored by transfer market.

"Well, for me this is a hard challenge, but a fascinating one", said Sarri.

The Costa Rica global saw off the near-signing of David de Gea from Manchester United and went on to play a key role in their incredible run of three straight Champions League titles.
