Chelsea set to award Eden hazard captaincy role at the club. The new Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has stated that he will make Eden Hazard the new captain of the club so as to keep him at Stamford Bridge.
Real Madrid have placed Hazard as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo at the Bernabeu after the Portuguese starlet moved to Juventus this summer window.
Chelsea are asking for as much as £200m for Hazard even though the Belgian who only has two years left on his contract had rejected a new deal with the blues.
Sarri had earlier made it clear that he will meet and speak with the player face to face when he returns to the club from his World Cup holiday.
But however sources in the UK is reporting that Sarri is desperate and willing to work with Hazard next season and has promised to make him the captain in an effort to keep him.
The Blues are likely to need a new captain next season with Gary Cahill’s place at the club doubtful should they land £44m Daniele Rugani from Juventus.
Sarri is considering other likely captain options, players like Cesc Fabregas and Cesar Azpilicueta, but will give Hazard the role to act as the extra motivation he needs to reject a move to Real Madrid this summer.
